St Benedict Greenstone Rosary, Nephrite Jade
This smaller-size greenstone rosary has a bronze center medal and crucifix that feature Saint Benedict's medal. Known as St Benedict's ward, this well-known medal is his prayer of protection and courage so that, as he said himself, we may "walk in God's ways, with the Gospel as our guide".
The 5 decades of Hail Mary beads are 6mm round greenstone, each individually linked with bronze rosary wire. The Our Father beads are slightly larger at 8mm round, with wee crystals on each side and wire-wrapping to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
The center medal shows St Benedict on one side, with his ward on the other. The same image is behind the figure of Christ in the crucifix.
Length when hanging: 49cm / 19.25 inches;
Crucifix: 3.5cm / 1.4 inches.
The rosary is well-made for years of prayer, and the smaller size is ideal for young fingers or those who prefer a smaller, lightweight rosary. It comes in a handmade rosary pouch to keep it in.
