Divine Mercy Rosary - Greenstone (Nephrite Jade) Beads
This full-size Catholic rosary is made in New Zealand, featuring a Divine Mercy center medal and greenstone beads (nephrite jade). The center is the Divine Mercy medal on a background of the letter "M", the Virgin Mary's monogram. On the reverse side are the words "Jesus I Trust in You". This center and detailed crucifix make this rosary a good choice for a special occasion in a Catholic's life, and for use as a Eucharist rosary.
The Hail Mary beads are 8mm round nephrite jade, each hand-linked with silver wire so the rosary flows smoothly through your hands in use. The Our Father prayer beads are intricate pierced pewter beads and are wire-wrapped to provide extra strength where needed most. The linked construction means the rosary is sturdy enough for rugged hands and it is covered by my personal guarantee.
I've used a substantial crucifix to balance the rosary. Cast in nickle & lead free pewter, it has a lightly oxidized finish to reveal the details. This design crucifix is sometimes called a 5-way cross because of the five emblems it contains. The Chalice under Christ's feet, the Virgin Mary to the right and the Archangel to the left, God the Father above with the descending Holy Spirit between Him and the figure of Christ on the cross.

This is a full-size rosary with a cool and substantial feel in the hands. It comes in a handmade lined cotton rosary pouch to store it in and will be attractively wrapped.
Please note that nephrite jade is a variegated natural stone. That means that each bead will look slightly different from each other due to the naturally occurring color variations as well as mineral inclusions.
