3 Decade Black Onyx and Carnelian Catholic Rosary with Bronze Cross
This 3 decade Catholic rosary is ideal for a man's rosary, and can be used to pray the 6 decade rosary by going around the loop twice. Made with black onyx beads for the three decades of Hail Marys, this rosary has natural carnelian teardrop beads for the Our Fathers and a bronze "radiant" cross.
The 3 decade rosary is popular for shorter prayer times, and because it smaller size makes it convenient for travel without losing the feel of the full-size beads.
For the Hail Mary beads I have chosen glossy black onyx, each individually linked with brass rosary wire. The Our Fathers are carnelian gemstone beads, orange-red with bands of translucence swirling through them or an even semi-transparent color. These beads are finished with wee jet Swarovski crystals and then wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed most. The rosary is covered by my personal guarantee.
At the center is a bronze Miraculous Medal of Our Lady and the bronze crucifix is a "radiant" style. In this cross, there is a burst of radiant light behind the figure of Christ, symbolizing His resurrection.
Length when hanging: 40cm / 15.75 inches;
Beads: 8mm round onyx, 15mm carnelian drops;
Crucifix: 4.5cm / 1.8 inches.
This is a nice rosary for personal use, which feels cool and smooth in the hands.
