Hematite Rosary - Traditional Catholic Boy's Communion Black Rosary
Glossy black hematite teamed with bright silver is a great combination for a smaller rosary with distinct masculine appeal - a perfect rosary for a boy's first communion gift.
The Hail Mary beads are 6mm round, each separately hand-linked with silver rosary wire which gives nice drape through the fingers. The Our Father beads are 10mm long hematite twist ovals, which I have wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most.
At the center is a Communion Cup and Host, and the silver-plated crucifix has a black enamel background. The smaller size beads in this rosary are perfect for young fingers, or for adults who prefer a lighter rosary.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 49cm (19.3 inches)
Center medal: 2cm
Crucifix: 3.75cm (1.5 inches)
This is a well-constructed rosary that will last for many years of prayer, and is suitable for rugged hands. This rosary has a cool, smooth feel through the hands. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton pouch to keep it in.
