Mala Bracelets-Gemstone meanings

Mala Bracelets-Gemstone meanings

The Mala Bracelets are Glass Garden Beads's latest addition. What's cool is that you can get the pieces and make it yourself  OR you can order it already made! 

I wanted to fill you in with the meaning of each gemstone. I always find the meanings to be fascinating, and  I believe there must be at least a hint of truth to them if their lore has sustained the passages of the ages.
It may make your choice easier. One may just call to you, or maybe more than one. I know I have my sights set on a couple. They are great layered or individually. As usual, let your imagination run wild.....
