Snowflake Obsidian & Agate Rosary, Memento Mori & St Michael Medal
A distinctive handmade rosary in snowflake obsidian and black agate beads, with Memento Mori skulls and a medal of Saint Michael the Archangel.
I've used 8mm round snowflake obsidian for the Hail Marys, with 10mm black agate beads for the Our Father prayer beads. All the beads are linked with black rosary wire, so the set flows well through your hands as you prayer the rosary. The larger beads are finished with little bead caps and wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most.
At the center hangs 2 Memento Mori white marble skulls, and a medal of St Michael the Archangel. The center connector is black pewter, showing Our Lady of Grace, St Bernadette and St Therese in a fleur-de-lis shape, with the Fiat of Mary symbol on the back. The traditional radiant crucifix is also black pewter.
Memento Mori are a traditional addition to any rosary or chaplet, intended for the living as a reminder of the brevity of life. Many saints like St Gerard Majella kept one close at all times to remind him that every day is important because which one will be our last day is unknown.
Length when hanging: 57cm / 22.5 inches;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall.
This full-size rosary is well-made for years of prayerful use. It comes attractively packaged with a card about Memento Mori.
