Quartz crystal is known as sphatik in Hindi. It is said its properties help with sleep, bring good fortune, increase energy and protect from dangerous animals. It is considered auspicious to wear quartz crystal while offering oblations for departed ancestors.
Each of these bracelets, made with natural, undyed quartz crystal gemstones and AUM charm, features a five-faced Rudraksha bead grown at Kauai’s Hindu Monastery and blessed in Kadavul Hindu Temple in Hawaii. While Rudraksha beads occur in various configurations, the five-faced ones are traditionally considered the most auspicious, suitable for all people. They are used in worship and meditation, as they are helpful in connecting oneself to the Divine.
