The black bead carries mud from the dead sea which is also known as the lowest point on earth. The white bead carries water from mt. Everest which is also known as the highest point on earth. The 2 beads represent the highs and lows in your life and the clear bead represent everything in between. This bracelet reminds you no matter where you are in your life whether it be at your highest peak or rock bottom to stay humble. I haven’t taken this bracelet off since I got it.
