Substantial Catholic Rosary, Black Onyx
This impressive rosary is a substantial size, while still being made to flow smoothly through the hands when being used in prayer. With 10mm black onyx and 14mm ornate pewter beads, a large Miraculous medal at its center and a 9cm jet cross, this rosary is impressive, and suitable for personal use, a presentation or addition to a collection
The Hail Marys are 10mm round black onyx, a hard and durable stone. Each bead has been hand-linked with silver rosary wire so the set drapes nicely in use.
The Our Father beads are ornately decorated 14mm round pewter spheres, similar to beads used in medieval times. I've wire-wrapped these beads to give extra strength where necessary.
The center medal is a well-known image of the Virgin Mary, known as the Miraculous Medal as well as the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, and is 4cm (1.6 inches) tall. The large cross has a silver-plated frame inset with black jet , with a silver pewter figure of Christ. Both pieces are made in Italy.
Length when hanging: 74cm / 29 inches
Center medal: 4cm / 1.6 inches
Crucifix:96cm / 3.5 inches.
This rosary is well-constructed for rugged hands, making it a great choice for a man who prefers a larger rosary. A meaningful rosary for personal use, which would make a thoughtful gift. It comes attractively packaged with a handmade rosary pouch to store it in.
