Turmeric Haldi beads are made from all natural, dried turmeric rhizomes, the bulbous root of the herbaceous turmeric plant. (Looks just like fresh ginger root, but very bright yellowish orange color of turmeric powder. Haldi is the Hindi word for turmeric.) The dried turmeric rhizomes are either ground into the familiar turmeric powder, or carved into these beads.
Turmeric Haldi beads are used to make special prayer malas for specific reasons.
Five strands per order. Each strand is approximately 24 inches; beads are approximately 7.0±0.5mm, 108±2 beads per strand for a total of approximately 540 beads per order. Beads have imperfections, which is to be expected in a natural product and does not distraction from the beauty, functionality and spiritual qualities of the beads.
The beads smell strongly of Turmeric, a highly valued Ayurvedic plant, and will leave yellow coloring on clothing and skin.
