Greenstone Catholic Rosary (Nephrite Jade) NZ Made
A lovely greenstone (nephrite jade) rosary made with 6mm round greenstone beads for the Hail Marys. This makes it a great rosary for a child or anyone who prefers a smaller size linked rosary - it is lightweight but with good flow through your fingers as you pray the rosary.
The greenstone beads are in the lighter green color range with visible black markings typical of this lovely jade. The Hail Mary beads are 6mm round, and the Our Father beads are slightly larger at 8mm round.
The center connector is the Sacred Heart, and the crucifix is a traditional "lily arm" style with 3 points at the end of each arm. These 3 points represent the Holy Trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Added together, the 12 points represent the 12 disciples who went out from the Cross to carry the Good News to the world.
Length when hanging: 46cm / 18inches;
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches tall.
A nice rosary for personal use, gifting or for a confirmation rosary, which is well-made for many years of prayerful use. It comes in a handmade rosary pouch to store it in.
