Black Onyx Rosary, Large Beads for Prayer, Presentation or Display
This substantial handmade rosary has 10mm round black onyx stone beads for the decades of Hail Marys - a larger size than most of my rosaries. The Our Father beads are ornately decorated pewter, each 14mm round and finished with wire-wrapping for extra strength. This is an impressive rosary for prayer, for a presentation, or for decor display.
At the center of the rosary is a large Saint Benedict medal that connects the loop of beads. All the beads are hand-linked with stainless steel rosary wire, so they flow smoothly through the hands as well as being sturdy.
The large-size crucifix is 7cm (2.75") tall and has black enamel inset in the background. The style is known as a "budded cross" because of the 3 round "buds" at the end of each arm which represent the 3-fold nature of the Holy Trinity. Added together, the 12 buds stand for the 12 Apostles who went out from the cross to carry the Good News to the world.
Length from center back to end of crucifix: 68cm / 27 inches;
Center medal: 4cm/ 1.6 inches;
Crucifix: 7cm / 2.75 inches tall.
This rosary is covered by my lifetime guarantee, and comes in a handmade (by me) rosary pouch to keep it in.
