Description
 
SOLD!

An incredible antique authentic coral mala with beads that span possibly hundreds of years. The mala is comprised of natural red coral and they vary slightly in size and shape. This is due to them being worn down from countless recitations of mantras and also some of the coral beads have been replaced along the way. It has beautiful round turquoise dividers and old silver bell and dorje counters that are strung on leather. The guru bead is made up of a huge vibrant red antique coral bead (24 mm). This bead does have a surface fissure that runs round the bead, so this might have been repaired at some point. The top of the guru bead is an antque ivory bead with fine patina.

Recently re-strung on strong braided nylon mala cord.

Origin: Tibet
108 Antique Coral Beads plus the three turquoise dividers
and guru bead with coral beaded tassle.
The coral beads average about 8 mm in diameter (some are as much as 10 mm)
Round Turquoise = 13 mm
Antique Coral Guru Bead = 24 mm
