Crystal(Sphatik) mala is a sacred string of beads worn around the neck. The beads are made of crystals, round in shape and diamond cutting, and usually 108 in number. Sphatik Mala has the quality of reducing the body temperature, hence it is worn by people who have excessive body heat. Crystal(Spathik) mala is also used for meditation and Chanting of manta. One who wears sphatik mala is said to become pacified and calm, and earn the grace of Lord Shiva.
