Harness the energy of the new moon with this beaded mala bracelet made of 8mm black obsidian and 6mm lava rock. Finished with a dark metal elephant bead. Handmade in California.
The new moon is also known as the dark moon because at this phase we can only see the side of the moon that is not being lit by the sun. It is a time for introspection, rest and self-care. Take time around the new moon to visualize what you want in the month ahead and set intentions.
- Black Obsidian: A strongly protective stone that shields from negative energy. This grounding stone is related to the root chakra/earth element.
- Lava Rock: Said to be a magical and lucky stone that is sacred to Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes, fire and magic. It is related to the root and solar plexus chakras.
- Elephants: Elephants hold much symbolism among a variety of cultures. I chose to incorporate an elephant in this bracelet because it represents wisdom and gentle strength. While elephants are large animals, they have a grounding and gentle nature.
