Holy Spirit Rosary, Greenstone (Nephrite Jade) & Pewter - Ideal for Confirmation or RCIA Gift
A handsome rosary made in New Zealand with greenstone (nephrite jade) beads and antiqued silver medal and crucifix. A well-made rosary which features a Holy Spirit center medal, making it an ideal Confirmation rosary.
I've used 8mm round nephrite jade beads for the Hail Marys and larger 10mm rounds for the Our Father & Glory Be beads. They are all linked by hand with silver rosary wire, and I've wire-wrapped the larger beads to give extra strength where needed.
The round center medal has the Holy Spirit on the front and the words "Come Holy Spirit enlighten me" in raised letters on the other side. The crucifix is a traditional "grapes & vine" style - both pieces are lead & nickle free pewter and are very good quality with nice detail, made in Italy.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 55cm (21.7")
Center medal: 2cm (0.8")
Crucifix: 4.5cm (1.8")
This is a substantial rosary which feels smooth and cool in the hands. It is suitable for men or women for regular use or as a gift for anyone receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, whether they're a teen receiving the Sacrament or an adult coming into the Church through RCIA.
The rosary comes in a handmade lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in, and will be attractively wrapped.
