Man's Rosary, Jasper Gemstone Beads with Brass
A handsome rosary made with natural jasper gemstone beads teamed with antiqued brass in a full-size, 5 decade Catholic rosary. Handmade right here in New Zealand, from my hands to yours.
The type of jasper here is called bracciated jasper, and is a naturally occurring stone that is hard and durable and takes a nice polish. The colours are subdued dark earthy tones ranging from a base of deep brown through red, black and grey. The brass components have been sealed to inhibit a change of colour through natural oxidisation.
The Hail Mary beads are each 8mm round, all linked by hand with brass rosary wire. The larger Pater beads are 10mm round and I've wire-wrapped them to give extra strength in the rosary where needed.
The center connector is the much-loved medal of Our Lady known as the Miraculous Medal. The brass crucifix is a traditional Celtic style with a smooth back - both pieces are made in Italy.
Length from mid-back to end of crucifix: 60cm / 23.5 inches
Center medal: 2.5cm tall / 1 inch
Crucifix: 4cm tall / 1.6 inches tall
Beads: 8mm & 10mm brecciated jasper gemstone beads
This is a substantial rosary that feels cool and smooth in the hands - a great choice for a man's rosary as it is well-made for rugged hands. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined cotton rosary pouch to keep it in and will be attractively packaged.
