This rosary is made in the Roman Catholic style with five decades of ten beads. The decade beads are 8 mm red tiger eye stone beads. The larger beads are 10 mm faceted matte black onyx stone beads. The small (3 mm) round beads are antiqued brass plated beads with small (4 mm) matte black onyx beads as accents. The entire rosary is strung on 49-strand wire with a nylon coating.
The Immaculate heart of Mary connector is double-sided with an image on one side (image 4) and a prayer on the other side (image 5). The antiqued brass crucifix (image 3) is double-sided and approximately 1.5 inches (35 mm) tall. The full rosary is approximately 19.75 inches long when fully stretched out.
Red tiger eye is a naturally occurring stone with bands of dark reds and reddish browns. This stone has a natural chatoyancy (or iridescence) that shimmers in the light.
