This rosary is made in the Roman Catholic style with five decades of ten beads. The decade beads are 6 mm tigerskin jasper stone beads. The larger beads are 8 mm black onyx glass beads. The connector, the crucifix, and the small (3 mm) connecting beads are all antiqued copper or antiqued copper plated metal. The entire rosary is strung on wire for sturdiness.
The connector has the Madonna and Child on the front with Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ on back.The crucifix is just over 1 inch tall, and the full rosary is approximately 15.75 inches long when fully stretched out.
Tigerskin “jasper” is the trade name for a kind of limestone with opaque, rich brown tones of contrasting bands against medium to darker golden base. The lines are created by iron oxide deposits. The beads have a matte finish and texture, creating an earthy appearance. Tigerskin “jasper” is known for promoting the ability to get out of one’s head and back into the body.
Black onyx is a natural stone with black coloring and very high gloss. It is known for promoting protection, encouragement, and strength.
