This rosary is made in the Roman Catholic style with five decades of ten beads. The decade beads are 8 mm amethyst stone beads. The larger beads are 10 mm faceted black onyx stone beads with a matte finish. The connector, the crucifix, and the small (3 mm) round beads are silver plated metal beads with small (4 mm) amethyst beads as accents. The entire rosary is strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The connector and crucifix are antiqued silver plated and the connector Madonna and child on the front (see third image) and the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the back (see fourth image). The crucifix (see second image for detail) is 35 mm tall, and the full rosary is approximately 19 inches long when fully stretched out.
Amethyst beads are made from natural stone and therefore contain natural color variations from bead to bead. They are all in the range of light to dark purple with varying amounts of banded stripes of color running throughout. The beads are also slightly translucent. Amethyst is known for promoting revelation, intuition, and healing.
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.
