You can feel the positive energy radiating from these incredible beads. 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 carved into rondelle beads measuring approximately 18x14mm.
These beads are strung in a loop, the way they are traditionally made in Nepal.
The holes of these beads measure approximately 3mm.
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.

These beads are fairly heavy; that is why their shipping charge is higher than on most of my beads.
