A detailed description of the semi-precious beads used within the rosary:

Natural Turquoise - Believed to be a stone of communication, making one more eloquent, loving, creative and honest. Also considered a stone of friendship. It was used for beads by the Egyptians as early as 5500bc and has been used in amulets in Europe and Asia for thousands of years and is important in Native American jewellery. The Navajo and Hopi in Arizona value Turquoise as an attractor of prosperity and fertility of the soil and treasure it as a powerful success and good luck stone. Black Onyx - Believed to be one of the most powerful protection stones. It absorbs and transforms negative energy. Enhances self-control and mental clarity. Snowflake Obsidian - Believed a stone of serenity and purity. Can provide balance during times of change, helping to recognise and release stressful mental patterns.

The Crucifix and Centerpiece have been hand cast in America from antique pieces
