This rosary is made in the Roman Catholic style with five decades of ten beads. The decade beads are 8 mm green aventurine stone beads. The larger beads are 14×11 mm black agate barrel beads. The connector, the crucifix, and the small (3 mm) connecting beads are all antiqued brass or antiqued brass plated metal with small (3 mm) green aventurine stone spacers. The entire rosary is strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The connector is double-sided with a Madonna on one side (image 3) and the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the other side (image 4). The crucifix is approximately 1.5 inches (35mm) tall, and the full rosary is approximately 19.5 inches long when fully stretched out.
Green aventurine is a naturally occurring stone that contains natural color variations from bead to bead, but it generally ranges from mossy green to deep green in color with occasional black striations.
