Greenstone Rosary (Nephrite Jade), Traditional Catholic Rosary
A full-size greenstone rosary in traditional Catholic styling with an antiqued brass center medal and crucifix. An impressive rosary, suitable for men or women.
The combination of forest green nephrite jade (greenstone) and aged brass gives this rosary timeless appeal, like a timeless treasure from the past - bound to become a family heirloom.
I've used 8mm round nephrite jade for the Hail Mary beads, each individually hand-linked with bronze rosary wire. This construction method gives the rosary very nice drape through the hands.
The Our Father beads are larger 10mm round greenstone. I've finished these beads with brass end caps and wire-wrapped them for extra strength where needed. This rosary will last for many years of prayer and become a family heirloom. It is covered by my lifetime guarantee.
The center medal and crucifix are cast in brass then lightly oxidized to bring out the details. The medal at the center is the well-known Miraculous Medal of Our Lady (also known as the medal of the Immaculate Conception). The rosary begins and ends with a radiant style crucifix with a smooth back. The radiant cross has a burst of light behind the figure of Christ, representing His resurrection.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 53cm / 21 inches
Center medal: 2cm / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches
This is a full-size rosary with nice weight which feels cool and smooth in the hands, and is well made for years of prayerful use. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in.
