Man's Black Onyx Rosary, Brass Celtic Crucifix
This handsome black onyx man's rosary is well made for rugged hands and features an antiqued brass medal and Celtic crucifix.
The beads are 8mm round black onyx for the Hail Marys in the 5 decades, and black onyx rondelles for the Our Father and Glory Be - a rondelle is a flattened round shape. I've finished the rondelles with little brass beads either side, and then wire-wrapped them to give extra strength where needed most in the rosary.
The center medal is the well-known Catholic medal called the Miraculous Medal or the medal of the Immaculate Conception. Both the medal and the Celtic design crucifix are cast in solid brass and then given an oxidized finish to create the look of a treasure from a bygone age. They are sealed to inhibit tarnishing.
Length from center-back to end of crucifix: 59cm / 23.2 inches
Center medal: 2cm tall / 0.8 inch
Crucifix: 5cm tall / 2 inches
This is a full-sized rosary which feels cool and smooth in the hands. It comes with my 20 year guarantee and is attractively packaged in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch for storage.
