Stella Maris Star of the Sea Rosary, Genuine Kyanite Gemstone Beads
Stella Maris - Our Lady Star of the Sea - is one of the Virgin Mary's titles, revealing her as a sign of hope and a guiding star for Christians. I've made this rosary with natural kyanite gemstone beads which are blue with a silvery luster.
The rosary has 6 decades of Ave beads and 7 Paters, a layout also known as the Brigittine or Carmelite rosary. The 6 decades are lovely 8mm coin-shaped semi-translucent blue kyanite gemstone beads. This gemstone has slight natural chatoyancy, meaning the beads shimmer with movement, like light playing across water.
The Pater beads are silver pewter shells, topped with tiny blue Swarovski crystals. These beads are wire-wrapped for extra strength where needed most.
The center medal is the much-loved Miraculous Medal of Our Lady. The rosary is completed with a small textured pewter crucifix, a medal of Stella Maris, and a star charm.
The beads are linked into the rosary by hand with silver rosary wire which will last for many years of prayer & is covered by my lifetime guarantee. It is reasonably lightweight with smaller beads than some of my rosaries, and it flows smoothly through your hands as you pray the rosary.
Under the name Stella Maris, the Virgin Mary is believed to intercede as a guiding light for Christians, in particular a light and protector for those who travel or seek their livelihoods on the sea. This would also be a lovely wedding rosary for anyone traveling or marrying near the sea, or with a special affinity for the oceans of the world.
Length from mid-back to end of cross: 61cm / 24 inches;
A lovely rosary for personal use or for gifting, it comes in a handmade (by me) textile rosary pouch to keep it in, and will be attractively wrapped.
