Q&A

What is so special about amber malas? Amber malas are extremely beautiful, warm, and pleasant to use. Malas are made of genuine Baltic amber with the personal touch – stupa/guru or set of two main beads (different names for the same thing) are handmade individually for each mala.

The process of mala making

Why amber beads have “dust”, “particles”, “scratches” inside? 
Well, because it is natural parts of amber which is – in fact – 40 mln. years old pine resin found in blue clay in Baltic sea. Those particles are probably turf, sand, microscopic particles of plants.

What are recommendations – how to use amber mala?
Amber is still breathing and interacting with the environment, so amber colour may change over time, this is expected and contributes to the unique, intensely individual nature of amber.
To clean your amber mala, use a soft flannel cloth dampened with clean lukewarm water. You should dry your amber, lightly polish with clear olive oil, and then remove any excess oil and restore the polish with another soft cloth.
Remember to be careful when cleaning or wearing amber mala – amber is a soft gemstone, and can be scratched.
