Symbolism in This Rosary
Jasper is one of the twelve foundation stones of the New Jerusalem, as written by Saint John in the book of Revelation. The Jasper available and valued at the time of his writing was green-hued, though there are an incredible number of varieties in a variety of colors. It is also named as one of the stones in the breastplate of Aaron, as described in Exodus. It could be highly polished, even long ago, and was used both as a gem and as a medium for sculpted items.
Chrysocolla is a copper-based green and blue mineral with a long history, described as early as 315 BC by Theophrastus as a stone used as a binding agent is goldsmithing. It was used as a gemstone from early times as well, known to be worn by Cleopatra, and found in the mines of King Solomon. When polished, its deep blue and green resembles somewhat the colors of Earth from space.
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three children every month between May and October of 1917. In addition to prophecies and the Miracle of the Sun at her last appearance, she request the children and others pray the rosary every day, adding the prayer “Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of thy mercy.” at the end of each decade.
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!
