Agate is known for its grounding & balancing properties and is believed to enhance mental focus. In particular, black agate is said to offer protection against physical harm originating from psychic threats and to strengthen courage. Suitable for wrathful practices in Vajrayana Buddhism.
Furthermore, Vajrayana Buddhists in Tibet, Nepal, India, Bhutan, China and other places often use malas of the same color as the body-color of the deities practiced. Thus this mala is suitable for Throma Nakmo, Black Tara and Mahakala practices in particular.
