Mixed Gemstone Rosary Beads, Bronze Mirculous Medal Center & Filigree Crucifix
A mix of natural gemstone beads in the 5 decades of Hail Mary and Our Father prayer beads make this a unique rosary, handmade here in New Zealand and suitable for men or women. The gemstones beads are various types of jasper, agate, unakite, serpentine and tigers eye.
The rich tones of the 8mm round polished gemstone beads is perfect with the antiqued bronze wire I've used to link the Hail Mary beads. The Our Fathers are larger, 10mm round jasper, and are finished with brass end caps and wire wrapping for that point of difference that clearly says "made by hand".
In the center is a bronze connector known as the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady, and also known as the medal of the Immaculate Conception. The pierced filigree crucifix is also bronze and both have been sealed to inhibit tarnishing.
Length when hanging: 56cm / 22 inches;
Center: 2cm / 0.8 inch tall;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches.
The rosary feels smooth and cool in the hands and flows smoothly when using it to prayer the rosary. It is well made for years of prayer and suitable for rugged hands. Like all my rosaries, it comes in a handmade cotton pouch to keep it in.
