This Unakite guru bead that is two parts. The larger part is the round bead where each end of the stringed mala enters and exists through the side of the ball part. Those two stringed ends are then strung through the smaller bead and tied into an attached tassel.
The two-part bead measures 21mm long by 10mm in diameter. The bigger hole is 2mm and the smaller holes are 1mm.
The name is easy to remember if you think about how the stone is a union of two other crystals: peach feldspar and green epidote.

Directions for using your natural Unakite guru bead:
1) Gather your materials. You'll need a mala necklace strung on cord under 1mm, a thread burner (for nylon cord only), adhesive, collapsible needle, and your guru bead set.
2) Curl the collapsable needle. Do this by pulling the needle between your thumb and finger nail. Repeat until the needle resembles a fishing hook.
3) String the cord through your needle. Then string the needle through the side hole of the guru bead and down through the bottom hole.
4) Pull the cord through the bead.
5) With the other end of your cord, repeat Step 3 by stringing it through the opposite side hole of the guru bead and down through the bottom.
6) Pull the cord through the bead so that both the tails are even.
7) String on the bottom of the guru bead and slide the 2 parts of the guru bead up to the necklace.
8) Secure the guru bead in place by knotting.
9) Now that the guru bead is strung, finish your necklace. A thread burner can seal the ends of nylon cord, and a dap of adhesive on the knot will keep it strong.
