The beads of this rosary are called wood opal. They are large, chunky beads, which makes for a longer rosary. The colors in the wood opal beads vary from ivory to yellow to yellow-green to green to brown. Olivine Swarovski crystals are used as spacers between the Ave beads. The accent beads around the Paters are a combination of 4mm champagne faceted round Swarovski crystals and 6mm round honey onyx.
The centerpiece is a large sterling silver Miraculous Medal with a decorative border. The sterling silver crucifix flares from the center, where there is a star behind Christ's head. A bunch of grapes is at each end of the cross beam, and at the base of the upright beam are stalks of wheat, which, of course, represent the bread and wine that become the body and blood of Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
Given the large size of the beads, this might make a good rosary for someone who has difficulty manipulating their fingers.
The overall length of the rosary is 26 3/4 inches (68 cm). It's a beautiful rosary, the kind to make people say, "Wow!"
Your rosary will be shipped USPS Priority Mail in the United States of America or standard mail for all other locations.
