FATURAN, became the protected brand name of one particular German company who mass-produced synthetic resin in rod form for making beads. These beads are now rare, but rarer still are the handmade beads of Arava Faturan’s time.

The creation of “Faturan” is thought to have originated by a chemist. He was melting down the filings left after carving beads from amber and mixed these remnants with other natural resins, such as mastika, frankincense, colophony, and turpentine, to mold individual beads from natural substances. Unfortunately, his original formula has long since been lost.

These Prayer beads are a sacred object that is used to help a person recite a mantra or a prayer.

These are made from natural materials, including stones. Each bead is hand-carved.
