Man's Black Onyx Rosary, Bronze St Michael Center & Crucifix
This handsome black onyx man's rosary is well made for rugged hands and features antiqued brass beads and bronze St Michael medal and crucifix.
The beads are 8mm round black onyx for the Hail Marys in the 5 decades, and 10mm hollow brass beads for the Our Father and Glory Be.
The center medal shows Saint Michael the Archangel, with the words Pray For Us on the back. Both the medal and the crucifix are cast in solid bronze and then given an oxidized finish to create the look of a treasure from a bygone age. They are sealed to inhibit tarnishing.
The arms of the traditional crucifix end in 3-pointed lily shapes, representing the 3-fold nature of the Holy Trinity. Added together, there are 12 points, standing for the 12 Apostles who went out from the cross to proclaim the Good News to the world.
Length from center-back to end of crucifix: 52cm / 20.5 inches
Center medal: 2.5cm tall / 1 inch
Crucifix: 5cm tall / 2 inches tall.
This is a full-sized rosary which feels cool and smooth in the hands. It comes with my personal guarantee and is attractively packaged in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch for storage.
