This rosary is made in the Anglican style with 4 sets of 7 beads in the loop. The week beads are 12 mm red malachite beads, the large beads are 16 mm faceted black onyx beads, and the spacers are 6 mm round black wood beads. The larger size of these beads make this rosary ideal for use by those with larger hands.
The draped cross is antiqued pewter and is 72 mm long and 35 mm wide. The entire rosary is approximately 13.75 inches from the bottom of the cross to the top of the loop when stretched out long.
This hand-knotted rosary is strung on dark brown twisted nylon cord, which gives great flexibility to the beads as they are being used and held. The terminating knots are reinforced with glue for additional sturdiness.
Red “malachite” is a type of jasper with banding that resembles the banded patterns found in natural green malachite, but in a beautiful terra-cotta color that resembles the adobe-style pottery of the Southwest.
