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 10 mm faceted matte black onyx beads. The connector, the crucifix, and the small (3 mm) connecting beads are all antiqued copper or antiqued copper plated metal with small (4 mm) matte black onyx stone spacers. The entire rosary is strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The connector is a two-sided with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on one side and a Madonna image on the other (images 4 & 5). The crucifix (image 3) is 44 mm tall and 26 mm wide. The full rosary is approximately 19.25 inches long when fully stretched out.
Green aventurine is a naturally occurring stone that contains natural color variations from bead to bead in shades of green with occasional brown or black markings.
