Blue Lapis Wrist Mala
This powerful healing bracelet is handmade by Sivana's Tibetan fair trade partners. With 21 deep blue lapiz lazuli beads and two turquoise gemstone bead spacers strung on a durable stretchy cord.
Lapis jewelry relieves anxiety and insomnia and can strengthen the immune system, helping to cure sore throats and headaches. Lapis also helps to open both the third eye and throat chakras in meditation as well as leading to greater creativity, spiritual enlightenment, wisdom and self expression.
Turquoise is a valued power stone, helping to strengthen and align the chakras; also used to cleanse the energy centers. As a meditation tool, this gem can assist in clearing the mind, opening you to the Universal All. Turquoise aids in attunement to the spiritual plane, providing protection during vision quests or astral travel.
The peaceful nation of Tibet, blessed by vibrant culture and traditions, exists despite constant threat of elimination, as a living civilization, breathing deeply of the unique attributes which make Tibet separate from all others. The varied and exceptional arts of Tibet have been the primary means by which her people have kept alive their rich heritage since the Chinese invasion. This wrist mala is carefully hand made by superior crafts people, exiled Tibetans refugees living in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Mongolia and elsewhere.
This is a fair trade item. Your purchase directly assists in the day to day lives of these refugees and aids in preserving and expanding the unique, rich Tibetan heritage and culture.

SHIPPING - Please note that shipping rates are skyrocketing, I am doing my best to subsidize them and still stay afloat so that you aren't hammered with giant shipping fees, but know that I end up paying the difference. There is little I can do, Festival Fire isn't gigantic enough to absorb all shipping costs, nor do we get our goods for pennies on the dollar from third world exploited labor. I think you will find that shipping fees are still reasonable, atleast domestically. Internationally rates are getting very high, and delivery is taking twice as long as just a year ago. Shipping to Australia is currently taking more than 8 weeks to arrive (due to Australian postal services, packages leave the USA in 2 days), while expedited fees to deliver within 3 weeks begin at more than $40. ~ Saphir
