Greenstone Rosary, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Prayer Beads, Nephrite Jade
Our Lady of Lourdes greenstone (nephrite jade) rosary, handmade in New Zealand by me - just for you. This full-size rosary is suitable for men or women and is well-made for years of prayer.
The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 8mm round greenstone, each separately linked with silver rosary wire. The Our Father prayer beads are two greenstone beads, clasped in pewter cups and wire-wrapped to give the rosary that unique handmade look. The linked construction means the rosary flows nicely through the hands in use.
the center medal shows Our Lady as she appeared in the grotto at Lourdes in France with Bernadette kneeling at her feet - now Saint Bernadette. This grotto is now one of the most-visited of all Marian shrines and famous for the healing waters that flow from the ground there. The crucifix is a traditional pierced filigree style, and both pices are nickle and lead free pewter made in Italy.
Length from center-back to end of crucifix: 57cm / 22.5 inches;
Center: 2.5cm / 1 inch;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches.
A meaningful rosary for personal use, which would make a thoughtful gift or addition to a collection. It comes attractively packaged with a handmade rosary pouch to store it in.
