Tibetan people considers turquoise as a crystal for travel. They believe Turquoise protects you and your possessions against theft, loss or attack, helps prevent accidents, especially falls, and even guards your pet. Turquoise prevents animals from straying or being stolen, and makes horses sure-footed and obedient to their riders.
This traditional Himalayan mala is mostly made up of yak bones. Given the limited amount of resources available in the Himalayas it is common practice to use beast of burden such as yak and buffalo for service and then slaughtered for consumption. None of the remains of the beast goes to waste as they are used for clothing, utensil and ritual items. Yak Bone is said to represent strength and increase prana.
