St Francis of Assisi Rosary, Agate Gemstone Beads, 5 Decade Catholic Rosary
Saint Francis of Assisi features on the center medal at the heart of this Catholic rosary. I've used natural agate beads in earthy colors to reflect St Francis' patronage of the natural environment, conservation and pets, and the rosary is suitable for men or women.
The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 8mm round agate, a hard and durable stone that has been used for centuries for rosaries as well as household items and personal jewelry.
The oval Pater beads are slightly larger at 10mm round, finished with silver end caps and wire-wrapping. All the beads are separately hand-linked so they flow smoothly through your hands as you pray the rosary.
The center medal shows St Francis with the wolf he famously tamed, and has the words Pray For Us on the back. The crucifix is a "radiant" style, which has a burst of light behind the figure of Christ, signifying his resurrection. Both pieces are made in Italy from nickle & lead free pewter.
Length from center back to end of cross: 53cm / 21 inches;
Center medal: 2.5cm / 1 inch;
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches.
A lovely rosary for personal use, which is well-made for years of prayer. It comes in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch to store it in.
