Rosary with round polished fossilized coral Hail Mary beads and round polished labradorite Our Fathers, with a Vatican coat-of-arms center and a Holy Trinity crucifix.
Symbolism in This Rosary
Labradorite was first discovered at Paul’s Island (originally Isle de St. Paul), Labrador. It can have a unique iridescence called Labradorescence that is caused by pairs of crystals aligning in a process called “twinning,” with light refracting in the first and then reflecting off the interior crystal, rather than by direct surface reflection. Just as in the paired Islands of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and the pairs of crystals needed for labradorite’s unique beauty, please consider how much the Church has gained by the shared work of Saints Peter and Paul.
The Vatican coat of arms dates from the 14th Century and was adopted by the Papal State on its formation in 1929. It consists of two crossed keys and a tiara, with the keys representing Christ's promise to Peter, and the Papal Tiara being a sign of the Pope's authority, begun to be worn in 1130, and discontinued by Pope John Paul I.
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!
