Inspiration for this mala:
Our founder designed this mala for her husband who says ‘perseverance’ is his motto for life.
Mary Lee’s husband, Joe nearly lost his life After stepping on an IED while deployed to Afghanistan. The physical injuries he sustained from the blast were substantial one of which led to the amputation of his left leg, below the knee. Despite losing his leg, he was determined to continue working as a Special Operations explosives expert. After re-learning to walk with the help of a prosthetic, he began to accept his new ‘normal’ as an amputee. He defied the odds. Through constant effort and perseverance, he became the first amputee to be allowed to remain on active duty. His perseverance extends beyond his physical and professional triumphs; eventually, he began to turn his efforts inward to focus on meditation, his emotional well-being, and spiritual growth.

Rainbow obsidian is said to bring about love and light by illuminating the dark corners of the past. It is said to protect against negativity and reveal the true nature of consciousness.
