Christian Rosary Prayer Beads, Agate & Jasper
Christian prayers beads made with natural agate & jasper stone beads teamed with antiqued silver - a gorgeous combination that makes this rosary as lovely to look at as it is to use.
The Anglican Rosary is more than a simple recitation of prayers. The beads offer a focal point to help keep the mind still while praying, so both the body and mind are engaged in prayer.
I've used 8mm round green jasper beads for the 4 groups of prayer beads, which is a nice size for regular use. The larger beads separating the groups are 15mm oval agate beads which are wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed. Short lengths of black & silver chain separate the sections.
A beautifully ornate solid pewter cross completes the set. The cross has been cast from a vintage mold, then lightly oxidized to show up the detail. The back is smooth, and the cross is sealed to inhibit tarnishing.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 43cm / 17 inches
Cross: 6cm tall / 2.4 inches tall.
Note: unlike the Catholic rosary, this Christian rosary is not long enough to be slipped over the head and worn as a necklace.
A lovely rosary for personal use which would make a thoughtful gift. It comes with a pamphlet about the Christian / Anglican rosary that has some suggested ways to start using it, and will be attractively wrapped.
