Lot of 20 beads made from the dried, five-sided seeds of the rudraksha tree, an evergreen from the high altitudes of the Himalayas.
One translation of "rudraksha" is "tears of Shiva," and these beads are often used in prayer strands (malas), or worn singly for their healing properties.
♥ A little smaller than most rudraksha beads ♥ Traditional reddish brown color.
Plenty light enough for earrings and lovely mixed with other natural elements in bracelets and necklace designs.
D I M E N S I O N S: approx 1/4" to 3/8" (about 8mm-10mm in length)
