A Personal Favourite
I had intended to sell this mala, but the more and more I worked with it, the more it called to me and yes it’s hard when you are creating not to be drawn to what you work with. Initially, I had intended to put a funky bright orange tassel with the fire agate, hence I colour matched with the orange silk, but somehow it detracted from the pendant piece and so it sits solo yet not alone.
With this mala I’ve used 8mm beads, which tend to be easier to count with when reciting your mantras, but also with this size I find that I can wrap the mala twice around my neck if I want to and when doing that with this piece, I tend to have the fire agate as the choker piece up snug as it nestles right in to the suprasternal notch, yes that soft piece between the collarbone actually has a name.
I fell in love with the fire agate, the photo doesn’t do it justice at all, when the light catches it, it literally comes alive with different tones and dimensions. It also reminds me of a book I am reading to my son called “The Chronicles Of Ancient Darkness” which is simply wonderful, I will be very sad when it’s over. It combines aspects of Shamanism, Wicca and all sorts bundled together in a children’s book of dark versus light in a non-scary way. There is, however, a Fire Opal which the soul eaters need in order to release the demons and turn the forest and lands dark. The way they describe this fire opal is so reminiscent of my fire agate, my son even excitedly thought it was one!
So what about Fire Agate?
