More About This Rosary
Bloodstone, also called heliotrope, has a long history of ornamental use, dating back at least to the Babylonians, even if the legend goes that it was formed when Christ’s blood fell on the rocks below the cross. It is a form of chalcedony with red inclusions, and was used in the Middle Ages in sculptures depicting martyrdom.
Carnelian, also known as sardius, is the sixth foundation stone of Revelation’s New Jerusalem, and is also used in Revelation to describe the Lord. It has a long history of use by royalty, with a strand of carnelian beads from 3100 BC discovered in Egypt.
The Jerusalem Cross, with a square cross surrounded by four crosslets, represents the five wounds of Christ and was the emblazoned on the coat-of-arms of the Medieval Kingdom of Jerusalem.
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!
