This rosary is made in the Anglican style with 4 sets of 7 beads in the loop. The smaller beads are 8 mm red creek jasper beads, the large beads are 10 mm ebony blackwood beads, and they are separated by 3 mm gold plated beads and small brown coconut shell rondels, all strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The Franciscan Tau wood cross is 32 mm long and 21 mm wide. The entire rosary is approximately 10.25 inches from the bottom of the cross to the top of the loop when stretched out long.
Red Creek Jasper, also called Cherry Creek Jasper, is mined in China. It was named for the creek that flows through the area where it was first discovered. Red Creek Jasper exhibits gorgeous combinations of tan, red, and sage greens. The swirling colors are broken up by a lined pattern that gives each stone an undeniably natural look.
NOTE: Due to the wide variety of colors and patterns in these beads, each rosary is different, so the photos shown are representative of this kind of rosary and will vary from the one you actually receive.
