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.
This rosary can be made with a 4 bead or a 5 bead stem (the section between the Cross and the centerpiece) The 5 bead stem is most common, but some people prefer the 4 bead instead, so both are available here.
About the gemstones:
Montana Agate is a natural agate usually with a base color of milky white to creamy light yellow to almost clear with embedded moss structures in varying shades of brownish red to black. These gemstones come from the area of the Yellowstone river & its tributaries. Red Brecciated Jasper is a red jasper base that has formed with elements of quartz and Hematite within it, creating a deep moody red accented with metallic black and occasional cream to clear inclusions.
