Greenstone Rosary (Nephrite Jade), Sacred Heart of Jesus & Virgin Mary
This handmade greenstone (nephrite jade) Catholic rosary is a smaller size, made with 6mm round beads. At the center is a silver pewter connector with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on one side and the Virgin Mary on the other. The small-sized beads makes this a great rosary for children, or for those who prefer a lightweight, more compact set.
The greenstone in this rosary is a lighter green with typical black inclusions. I've used 6mm round beads for the Hail Mary beads, each linked by hand with silver rosary wire which means the rosary flows well through your hands during use.
The Our Father beads are a bit larger at 8mm round & are finished with tiny bead caps then wire wrapped to give extra strength where needed.
The crucifix is a traditional pierced filigree style with a slim profile while still being sturdy. It is made from nickle and lead free pewter, as is the center medal. The rosary loop is long enough to slip over the head without needing a clasp.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 47cm / 18.5 inches
Crucifix: 3.75cm / 1.5 inches
Beads: 6mm & 8mm nephrite jade.
This is a lovely lightweight rosary for personal use, which feels cool and smooth through the hands. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in and will be attractively wrapped.
This rosary will last for many years of prayer and is covered by my lifetime guarantee.
