The Lacerta Prayer bead necklace has the Lacerta Pendant and uses Rudraksha beads. The word Lacerta translates to Lizard in the Latin language. The lizard holds different meanings for different cultures around the world. For certain Native American Indians, it represents conservation and self-protection, the Dogon of West Africa consider it a protective spirit animal, while the Bamum tribe of Cameroon see it as a powerful fertility symbol. The Buddhist prayer necklace, often called Mala, are made from Rudraksha seeds. Traditionally the number of beads on a mala necklace is 108 plus one,. The extra bead is called a bindu, which enables the energy given off by the necklace to avoid being cyclical.
