Moukaite Mala prayer beads

Hand made in Australia

These gorgeous Malas are handmade and created with the intention of bringing unconditional love to the bearer. Each Mala has 108 beads and one Guru or God bead with a cotton tassel.

Mala beads are traditionally used while reciting mantra, to count the number of repetitions. 108 repetitions is the traditional number, although one can do half a mala, or sets of 12 – it’s up to the individual. Mala beads can be used during mantra or meditation, or worn everyday.

Malas take on the energy of the prayer or mantra, and the more a person uses them with a particular mantra, the quicker it helps them set that strong intention. Sometimes people have several Malas – and when they move on to a new intention, they will purchase a new Mala for this purpose.

Round polished crystals are interspersed with rudraksha seeds—a traditionally-used bead in Mala beads. Each knot of the cotton string has been hand-tied while reciting the ‘Om Shreem’ mantra.

The Om Shreem mantra is translated as abundance for life.

Using your Mala

Hold in the hand while cradling the weight of it with your other hand, or laying it in your lap/on your leg.

As you recite, pull each bead toward you with your thumb. When you return to the Guru bead, turn around and head back the other way if doing more than one set. Don’t go over the Guru bead – use it as a turning point.

Caring for your Mala

Please be gentle with your Mala. You can keep it in the velvet pouch provided, or make one that suits out of natural fibres preferably – silk is ideal as it contains the energy of your Mala.


You can cleanse your Mala in a number of ways—either place on dry salt, smoke with sage or eucalyptus leaves, or place in the sunshine for no more than an hour, or under the light of the moon. Any method is fine, as long it doesn’t get wet.

About Moukaite

Moukaite is found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. The Aboriginal term “Mooka” means “running waters” and refers to the numerous springs that feed into this area. Mookaite was formed as the skeletal remains of radiolaria, microscopic protozoa with a hard silica shell, were deposited over millennia as sediment in shallow areas of sea beds. As waters receded, the remains were solidified by additional silica carried in groundwater, along with minerals that produced its beautiful combinations of red, burgundy, mustard-yellow, cream, white, brown, mauve and purple.

Considered a sacred healing stone by the Indigenous people of Australia—connecting one with the electromagnetic energy currents of the Earth, to utilise these positive energies to increase one’s will and focus personal power. Promotes an ageless spirit willing to accept change and seek new experiences, and awakens natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take. Physically stabilising stone to boost the immune system and help counter the effects of ageing. Highly restorative for tissue deterioration of the internal organs, and useful in treating cystitis, high blood sugar, and disorders of the kidneys and bladder. Supports proper fluid intake and balances mineral content.
