Prayer & Meditation Beads, Copper Tree of Life
From sets of beads made with pebbles or seeds to elaborately embellished strands of precious gems, strands of prayer and meditation beads have a long and rich history. They have been used for centuries by many cultures to help bring both mind and body into prayer and meditation activity.
This set of prayer & meditation beads is designed to be held in the hands or run through the fingers to help quiet mental "chatter" and allow you to focus on the purpose of your prayer or meditation, and to increase mindfulness.
This set features a lovely copper Tree of Life medallion together with rose quartz and greenstone (nephrite jade) beads. The rose quartz beads are in groups of three, separated with larger greenstone beads finished with wee white opal Swarovski crystals.
Rose quartz: love, harmony, friendship - promotes peaceful sleep & beautiful dreams;
Nephrite jade: loyalty, respect, love & protection.
The meaning of the Tree of Life as a spiritual symbol is well known and, like the tree itself, many branched and deeply rooted. The Tree of Life crosses all cultures and has become a common symbol of life, ancestry, mythology, lessons of the spirit, and hope for the future... and climbing to the heavens.
The circle of beads meets at a scrolled copper connector, which falls into a single front greenstone bead and the pendant. The set comes with a pamphlet explaining a bit about the beads and some suggested ways to start using them.
Length from center back to end of medallion: 22cm / 8.75 inches

Beads: 10mm gemstone rondelles
A lovely set of prayer or meditation beads for personal use which is well made to last for many years. It would make a thoughtful gift for a friend, and comes attractively wrapped.
