You can choose a mala by any one or all of these aspects. Here are some suggestions:
Birthstone: Take a choice depending on your birthstone could be simple but pretty good. Look at your birthstone, make your choice based on the 7 chakra system or choose on an intention. But you should notice that not all the birthstone can take into the mala such as diamond.
Natural stone: A key factor in choosing mala is to connect it to the intent you want to display. Ask yourself before you take a choice:
What do I want to create in my life?
What am I working on professionally, emotionally or spiritually?
What am I struggling with or challenged by?
One of the coolest things about mala beads are their metaphysical properties. Everything is made up of energy and vibration. For example, if you are intending to look for more love, that aligns to an energy of a specific gemstones and you can choose rose quartz.
A direct other way of choosing a gemstone is to close your eyes and think strongly about the intention you have.
