Turquoise, Coral, and Shell come together in one in these incredible beads. You can feel the positive energy radiating from these beauties. Conch shells are believed to be auspicious in both Buddhist and Hindu cultures. In Hindu Mythology, Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, was believed to have used a White Conch Shell as her abode. The white Conch comes from the Indian Ocean. In its full form, the Conch shell is used during times of prayer, and as a votive to keep away dangers of the sea. Due to its interior spiraling feminine form, it also represents female fertility. It is often used in traditional Indian and Nepali jewelry.
The center of White Conch shells have been cut into rondelle beads, then inlaid with chips of Turquoise and Coral. These have a beautifully earthy feel to them.
Each bead measures approximately 15x12mm, but there is some variation as they are each handmade.
This listing is for 6 loose beads.
The holes of these beads measure approximately 1.5mm.
Why not make your own spiritual jewelry or mala with these powerful beads.
These would be beautiful hanging on a wall, in a shrine, or in a centerpiece.
