Create a glittering display with help from the Dakota Stones goldstone 12mm guru bead. This rounded bead features a unique design with three stringing holes. Bring each end of your stringing material through the holes on the sides of the bead and then bring both ends down through the stringing hole at the bottom of the bead. The smaller tower bead holds both ends together once they are strung through. This bead is added to designs after the rest of your beads are strung, so you don't have to worry about adding a clasp. Guru beads are traditionally used in mala jewelry. Malas are used with a prayer, or mantra, to meditate. Almost all malas feature a guru bead at the center of the design. It signifies the end of one round in the prayer circle. On a full-sized mala with 108 beads, the guru bead is the 109th bead. This gemstone guru bead features flecks of copper sparkle. Metaphysical Properties: Known as the "Generator Stone," goldstone is often used for healing and protection.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
