Greenstone Rosary Beads, Sacred Heart Center,
A handmade set of rosary prayer beads can be an inspiration to prayer, especially when the set includes beads and symbols that are meaningful to you as you pray the rosary.
This set is made with medium-green nephrite jade (greenstone). This beautiful stone of the earth symbolises love and respect when given as a gift. The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 8mm round beads, and the Our Father beads are 10mm round finished with pewter bead caps & wire-wrapping. All the beads are individually linked with silver rosary wire.
The center medal is the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with a small icon of the Holy Family on the other side.
The design is completed with a silver pewter radiant "Fleurie" or "lily" crucifix. This cross features a three-petal design, representing the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The distinctive, open flower shape is symbolic of the Resurrection, as is the burst if light behind the figure of Christ.
Length from center back to end of cross: 55cm / 21.7 inches;
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch;
Cross: 5cm / 2 inches tall.
This is a full-sized rosary which feels cool and smooth in the hands, and is suitable for men or women. It comes in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch to store it in and will be attractively packaged.
