"The popularity of birthstones attests to the fact that many people remain intrigued by the connection between gems, the zodiac and their own nature"
Bali Malas is excited to begin offering monthly, special edition Sky Malas, created in reflection of the path of the sun across the sky, a complete revolution of the moon around the earth, the 29.531 days between successive new moons. Sky Malas compliment the belief that the wearing of particular stones when specific stars are at certain locations in the sky can have therapeutic and talismanic benefits. Our Sky Malas offer support, protection, blessings and enhancement for that particular period, marking the events, births, losses, transformations and celebrations, a recall over this space we call time. The quantity of each Sky Mala is very limited, with just a few of each available and once they are sold they will no more! A perfect gift and collection retrospective of 2016.

Garnets /ˈɡɑrnət/ - The term garnet comes from the Latin granatus which means "seed-like". January is a good time to think of these seeds (goals, resolutions, evolutions) and how to plant and nurture to fruition this fall. Garnets are a reminder of the returning light, with each passing day from winter solstice forward we (northern hemisphere) begin to see the length of the light in our days, the sun lingering longer in our view. Wear garnets as a reminder of this returning light, a window into your own personal light, and the seeds you will sow this year.
