This rosary is made in the Anglican style with 4 sets of 7 beads in the loop. The smaller (week) beads are 8 mm dumortierite round beads, the large beads are 10 mm faceted snow quartz round beads, and they are separated by 3 mm round imitation nickel plated beads and 3 mm round matte snow quartz beads, all strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The stainless steel cross is 41 mm long by 28 mm wide with open cut-outs in a butterfly-like shape. The entire rosary is approximately 11.5 inches from the bottom of the cross to the top of the loop when stretched out long.
Blue dumortierite, also called “blue denim stone,” is an aluminum borate silicate whose colors vary from medium to dark blue. This is a natural stone and may therefore vary slightly in color and patterning from bead to bead.
Snow quartz is a cloudy translucent to semi-translucent quartz that comes from microscopic inclusions that were encased in the crystal as it first began growing.
The silver colored components of this rosary are imitation nickel (zinc) and stainless steel, which results in a silver color that is all tarnish free.
This item comes in a gift box suitable for gift giving.
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.
