Perfectly rustic, these natural beads are hand-cut from Holy Basil in India. Holy Basil is also called Tulsi, and these beads are often used in Hindu ceremonies. Tulsi is a healing plant, and in India they make tea from it.
Individual beads measure approximately 5x6mm, and the strand is approximately 36" long.
The hole measures approximately 2mm. These are strung with knots between them, the way they are traditionally strung in the bead markets. There are 108 beads per strand.
Cut these spiritual beauties apart and make some magic of your own!
