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 aventurine round beads, the large beads are 10 mm faceted matte black onyx beads, and they are separated by 3 mm round imitation nickel plated beads and 4 mm round matte black onyx beads, all strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The antiqued pewter cross is 31 mm long and 26.5 mm wide with a woven design. The entire rosary is approximately 11 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 aventurine beads are made from natural stone and therefore contain natural color variations from bead to bead, but they range from navy blue to a light country blue in hue. Aventurine also contains small inclusions of shiny fuchsite, a mica material, that gives the stone a glistening effect.
