If you have a friend, family or loved ones who are experiencing fear, worry or concern, then black tourmaline is a thoughtful gift that will help them to feel protected and safe. Black tourmaline is widely recognised as being the most powerful protective stone. It can support people when they are experiencing distress or negative energy. It is also a wonderful gift to give heading into a new year, as it releases stale energy and pent up emotions. A string of black mala beads will help the wearer be rid of any of the challenges or stresses of the year, and prepare themselves for what is to come. It is associated with the sign of Capricorn, and has a steadfast, stable and balancing energy. You can read more about black tourmaline here.

Our mala bead sets are high quality pieces, handmade with care. However we recommend looking after your beads to support their longevity.
- It’s best not to wear the beads in the shower or for swimming regularly.

- Bracelets should be gently rolled on and off the wrist. Avoid pulling on the elastic cord, as it can weaken over time.

- Keep the beads in the pouch when you are not wearing or using them
If your beads are a little dirty from general wear, you can gently rinse it under warm water. Avoid using any types of chemicals on your mala beads. If you want to freshen up the tassel, you can do this by wetting the tassel and gently combing the strands while still slightly damp. Allow the tassel to dry.
