Symbolism in This Rosary
Agates have a long history of human use, and are likely the "sparkling gems" mentioned in the Old Testament, with some tranlations acknowledging this. They come in a variety of colors, and are the accepted source for modern chalcedony.
Red symbolizes the blood shed for our atonement, as well as a devotion unto martyrdom. It is one of the colors of Christ’s Divine Mercy, and is the vestment color for both Good Friday and Pentecost. It is the color of witness---a life lived for Christ even unto death.
Blue is the color most associated with heaven and the most used color in the Tabernacle of the Temple. The Virgin Mary often wears blue in her apparitions, and it is the color of God’s divine grace.
Kyanite is a striking natural blue gemstone whose names derives from the Greek word for “blue.” It is an index mineral, as it forms only under a specific temperature and pressure. It can exhibit chatoancy, and it often exhibits a range of blues. It has a rare quality of different hardnesses depending on the direction it is struck. Until the 20th Century, it was often mistaken for sapphire.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents Christ’s unconditional love for all humanity, as well as his suffering for us. It at times is depicted with a cross over it or the fire of his burning love.
Our goal is to provide you a rosary, not just sell you a rosary. We use only stainless steel eyepins, linkages, and jump rings for both their strength and durability. If there is any defect in the workmanship of a rosary you purchase from us, please let us know, and we will make it right, free of charge, including shipping, within the first year of purchase. Also, for as long as we make rosaries (a lifetime, we hope!), if a rosary we made for you ever has a broken linkage, eyepin, or jump ring, we will be happy to repair it, with cost limited to shipping. Whatever we can do to keep you praying!
