Description

Whether you want a mala for its power to sooth, to request help with your training, to wear as jewelry, or just to own a beautiful talisman, both genders and all age groups will appreciate this selection that we have hand picked from the artist’s studio.

Wenge is a rare, expensive, tropical hardwood (millettia laurentii) that is found in Congo and  Equitorial Guinea. It is listed as “endangered” and its use almost entirely confined to expensive musical instruments. It ranges in color from yellow to very dark brown, and darkens with age and handling to the point where the beads of an old and well-used Mala can resemble jet.

Wenge wood is increasingly hard to find, so the prices of the mala in this collections are remarkably reasonable.
