This Prayer Necklace is made of Golden Obsidian, which means it has a golden sheen, a two-tone reflection.  Obsidian is a volcanic stone and thus earthly.  Golden sheen obsidian is great for healing abuse of power and for activating the higher Will. It affects the 1st chakra (root) and 3rd chakras (solar plexus).  It is good for clearing negative energies and purifying one's auric field. Other elements of this Mala include lava accent beads, cinnabar Guru bead, and a black, silk, five-inch tassel.
