This rosary is made in the Anglican style with 4 sets of 7 beads in the loop. The smaller (week) beads are 8 mm blue tiger eye round beads, the large beads are 10 mm buri root beads, and they are separated by 3 mm round antiqued silver plated beads and 4×2 mm black coconut wood rondelles, all strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The antiqued pewter cross is 64 mm long and 41 mm wide with a decorative one-sided design. The entire rosary is approximately 11.25 inches from the bottom of the cross to the top of the loop when stretched out long.
The silver colored components of this rosary are imitation nickel (zinc), pewter, and stainless steel, which results in a silver color that is all tarnish free.
Blue tiger eye beads, also known as Hawk’s eye, are made from natural stone with natural variations in color and markings from bead to bead. This is a blue-grey stone that is well-known for its reflective properties and chatoyancy–iridescent flashes of color that are brilliantly reflected from the surface of the stone. Blue tigereye is known for promoting soothing, emotional balance, and clarity.
The buri root beads are hand-carved beads from the root of the buri palm tree, which is native to India, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea, northeastern Australia (Cape York Peninsula, Queensland), and the West Indies. These beads can range from brown to black.
Although I have done my best to photograph the color of this item accurately, please allow for variations in monitor settings and for the fact that the photo is taken under high powered lights.
