Grey Agate Memento Mori Rosary with St Michael Medal
A distinctive handmade rosary made in grey agate gemstone beads, with Memento Mori skulls and a medal of Saint Michael the Archangel.
Memento Mori are a traditional addition to any rosary or chaplet, intended for the living as a reminder of the brevity of life. Many saints kept one close at all times to remind themselves that every day is important because which one will be our last day is unknown.
I've used 8mm round grey 'crazy lace' agate for the Hail Marys, with 12mm fancy pewter beads for the Our Fathers. This attractive agate has patterns of white, grey & black throughout the stone, making each bead an individual work of nature's art.
All the beads are linked with black rosary wire, so the set flows well through your hands as you prayer the rosary. The larger beads are finished with little crystals then wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most.
At the center hangs 2 Memento Mori marble skulls and a medal of St Michael the Archangel. The center connector is black pewter, showing Our Lady of Grace, St Bernadette and St Therese in a fleur-de-lis shape, with the Fiat of Mary symbol on the back. The traditional radiant crucifix is also black pewter.
Length when hanging: 57cm / 22.5 inches;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall.
This full-size rosary is well-made for years of prayerful use. It comes attractively packaged with a card about Memento Mori.
