This limited edition rosary has been handcrafted with top quality components and meticulous attention to detail. It is meant to be a treasured heirloom. The gemstones featured in this rosary are African Turquoise Jasper & Blue Dumortierite. This rosary also features a simple rounded silver plated cross, and coordinating silver plated spacer beads. The rosary is made with profession grade flex wire, superior to traditional link rosaries in many ways. It is soft and flexible with a beautiful natural drape and excellent strength and durability.
Please note: this rosary includes an extra bead (called the resurrection bead) between the Invitatory bead and the first Cruciform bead. The resurrection bead is used as a reminder that Christ lives on. If you would prefer the more traditional format of a 33 bead Christian Rosary, just send me a quick note, I would be happy to customize this rosary for you.
All Holy Rocks items are available on a limited edition basis. Many are one of a kind. Because this item features natural gemstones, the rosary you receive may differ slightly from the one in the photograph.
About the gemstones: African Turquoise is mined in Africa and is actually a type of spotted teal jasper rather than turquoise. Its matrix structure is similar to that of turquoise, as is its bluish-green color. Blue Dumortierite is a fairly rare natural blue gemstone that is part of the quartz family. These stones feature amazing rich blue shades, reminiscent of denim. A subtle matte finish has provided a nice modern touch to both gems.
