Malas, or prayer beads, have been used since at least the 10th century as a meditation tool. Each bead is used to count Mantra recitations. A meditation Mala helps focus awareness and concentration. Black Onyx is a soothing and comforting stone, useful in times of grief or excessive mental or physical stress.
It is said to help alleviate fears and worries and to help you feel comfortable within your self and in your surroundings. It is also believed to promote stamina and vigour and to encourage the making of wise decisions.
