Beautiful antique mala with inlaid disks. Some have metal inlay, others have beads, turquoise or coral. Probably human bone.
The silver counters are inlaid on either side with coral and turquoise. The guru bead is composed of a bodhi seed, with three holes and drops to a carved bone piece, with a nice patina.
This is a stellar piece with a good deal of age.
An excellent piece for both practitioners or collectors. We don’t see much of this quality these days.
