Mary, Untier of Knots Rosary, Agate Gemstone Beads


I've made this attractive semi-precious bead rosary with agate, a natural stone which is hard and durable - and is even mentioned in the Bible. The variety of agate is "crazy lace agate", named for the patterns in each bead, with colours ranging from pale grey to many shades of brown.

The center medal features an image known as Mary Untier (or Undoer) of Knots, with the Holy Face of Jesus on the other side. Over the years this image has become associated with marriage difficulties, but it is also a presentation of Mary, by her obedience to God's will, undoing the knots or problems of everyday life.

This rosary is made with 8mm round agate beads for the 5 decades of Hail Marys & 12mm ovals for the Our Father prayer beads. The beads are hand-linked with silver rosary wire which means the rosary will flow nicely in your hands when using it. The larger beads are wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most - this rosary is made to last.

Length hanging: 56cm / 22 inches;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall.

While a student in the 1980s, Cardinal Bergoglio, (now Pope Francis), visited the church of St. Peter in Perlach where the original painting hangs. He was so deeply touched by this ancient devotion, that he brought its history back to Argentina where it grew in popularity with the people. Now, we are made more aware of its history thanks again to Pope Francis. 

A great rosary for personal use which feels smooth and cool in the hands. It would make a thoughtful gift, and comes in a handmade cotton rosary pouch to keep it in.
