St Benedict Amethyst & White Stone Rosary
This impressive rosary is made with white howlite stone beads for the Hail Marys, and amethyst gemstone beads for the Our Fathers. It features a center connector of Saint Benedict with his ward (prayer of protection) on the back, and the crucifix is a classic Benedictine style.
The 5 decades are 8mm round white howlite, a white stone with grey matrix running through each bead. All the beads are hand-inked with silver rosary wire so the set flows smoothly through the hands in prayer.
The Our Father beads are pairs of natural amethyst gemstone beads, separated with studded pewter circlets. These are wire-wrapped for extra strength, and to give the rosary that unique handmade look.
The center connector shows Saint Benedict on the front, and his ward of protection on the other side. The pewter crucifix has a plain back. Both pieces are nickle & lead free pewter made in Italy.
Length when hanging: 58cm / 23 inches;
Center connector: 2cm / 0.8 inch;
Crucifix: 5cm / 2 inches tall.
This is a full-size rosary suitable for men or women, and is well-made for many years of prayerful use. It feels cool and smooth in the hands - perfect for personal prayer or for gifting or a presentation. A handmade lined rosary pouch is included to store it in.
