Red Agate Bahai Prayer Beads will delight to both your eyes and your fingers
Agate is a variety of fine grained, bright quartz. Agate is the mystical birthstone for September, the zodiac sign of the Gemini, and the gemstone for the 12th and 14th years of marriage. It is a stone that has been carved and used for decoration since prehistoric times. In many legends, agates are a stone that enhances memory, concentration, and perception. It is the stone associated with the virtues of honesty, calmness and courage.
Agates come in a variety of colors. This red agate is particularly beautiful, ranging from translucent cream to a delicious warm red.
We string our Bahai Prayer Beads with 95 semi-precious stones plus 5 counter beads. Since we use them ourselves, we string the beads loosely. This way they pass easily between your fingers as you pray.
Each set of prayer beads comes with a copy of the Gift of Prayers as well as a fold-out instruction sheet. This contains common prayers, a pronunciation guide and an explanation of some of the many ways to use prayer beads. The set comes packaged in a velvet, drawstring pouch.
The beads are 6mm round which makes the strand about 22-23″ inches in circumference. This allows them to double as a necklace for people who wear a small hat size.
The care and craftsmanship we put into stringing the beads mirrors the delicate beauty of the beads. Each stone is like a little work of art with God’s signature shining out. The moderate price for a hand-crafted item makes them excellent gift. Think of prayerbeads as gifts for special occasions like birthdays, Holy Days, anniversaries, graduations, or when someone becomes a Bahá’í.
The quality is unconditionally guaranteed, but please read the description of the size of the bead and the length of the strand because there is a 10% restocking fee if they are returned because they aren’t the size you expected.
