Sodalite Bahai Prayer Beads
Nothing is more interesting that the rich colors of our Sodalite Bahai Prayer Beads
Sodalite is a rich navy blue mineral with white streaks, named after its sodium content. Similar in look to our new Lapis Lazuli beads, but darker blue and less expensive. It is more of a navy blue, while Lapis is more royal blue. It is a light, but hard gemstone and one of my favorite gemstones.
Sodalite is associated with the virtues of peace, harmony, as well as endurance. It is said to aid inner peace, clear mental confusion and enhance intuition. Some say it is the stone for athletics who must develop endurance. Some say it is the stone of scholars, fostering knowledge, wisdom and learning proficiency. They could also simply be the most beautiful prayer beads you will ever see.
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.
