This rosary is made in the Anglican style with 4 sets of 7 beads in the loop. The smaller beads are 8 mm mahogany obsidian round beads, the large beads are 10 mm obsidian round beads, and they are separated by 3 mm imitation nickel (zinc-based) plated round beads and 4 mm obsidian round beads, all strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The cross is approximately 1.75 inches long and is made from antiqued pewter (tin-based) with a round black resin inset. The entire rosary is approximately 11 inches from the bottom of the cross to the top of the loop when stretched out long.
Mahogany obsidian is a naturally occurring stone and therefore contains natural color variations from bead to bead, but is generally a deep reddish-brown volcanic glass stone with black woodgrain-like inclusions and streaks. The images shown are representative of the one you will receive, but each rosary varies somewhat in appearance due to the variations in the stones used to create them.

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.
