This rosary is made in the Roman Catholic style with five decades of ten beads. The decade beads are 8 mm fossil coral stone beads. The larger beads are 10 mm black obsidian beads, and the small black spacers are 3 mm black obsidian beads. The connector, the crucifix, and the small (3 mm) connecting beads are all antiqued brass or antiqued brass plated metal. The entire rosary is strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The connector is double-sided with Our Lady of Fatima images on both sides.
The crucifix is approximately 1.5 inches (35mm) tall, and the full rosary is approximately 18.75 inches long when fully stretched out.
Fossil coral beads show patterns of prehistoric coral in light and dark sandy colors with exquisite lace-like, naturally formed designs. They are primarily composed of calcite with quartz inclusions, and the color and design vary from bead to bead.
