First Communion Rosary, White Howlite Stone Beads
White howlite gemstone beads make a traditional Catholic rosary for a First Communion gift - a popular choice for a boy as a gift from a family member or Godparent on this important occasion.
White howlite is a marble-like natural stone with a white base that has grey and black lines of matrix throughout each bead.
The Hail Mary beads are just 6mm round, so this is a smaller-sized rosary but the loop is still long enough to slip over the head. The Our Father prayer beads are a little larger at 8mm round, and all the beads are separately linked with silver rosary wire.
The center connector is a Communion Chalice with Host, and the rosary has a simple silver pewter crucifix.
Length when hanging: 47cm / 18.5 inches
Crucifix: 3.5cm / 1.5 inches tall.
The stone beads in this rosary mean it feels smooth and cool in the hands, and it is well made for years of prayerful use. It comes in a handmade (by me) cotton rosary pouch to keep it in.
