Prayer Malas or beads are usually used by Buddhists around the world, especially in Tibet, Nepal and India for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. The single turquoise stone is known as a master healer, with the ability to repair physical injury, mental strife and even past life trauma. Turquoise healing properties promote communication and will help solve petty arguments and resolve hostilities. It can also help people who wear it to gain wisdom. Turquoise healing properties can even protect the wearer from harm by absorbing negative influences.
