108 Lava Mala
108 is an auspicious number for many reasons. Some believe there are 108 stages on the journey of the human soul. While others connect the number to astronomy, energy lines in the body, and the Sanskrit alphabet. It's also tradition for a Mala to have 108 beads, plus one guru bead.
Rudraksha: Rudraksha seeds grow inside of what look like blueberries on trees South East Asia. In Buddhism and Hinduism, the beads are believed to provide inner calm, peace, and free one from negative thought. The beads get darker over time as they absorb your oils and energy. This is thought to strengthen the rudraksha.
Lava: Lava stone is worn as a reminder of strength and clarity. The porous black rock is associated with emotional grounding and is connected with the root chakra.
