Symbolism in This Rosary
Obsidian is a rock that forms when lava comes into contact with water and cools very quickly. Depending on the composition of the lava, it can have a variety of qualities and additional colors beyond its characteristic black.
Tiger’s-Eye is a brown stone of the quartz group that displays “chatoyancy,” or a changing of colors as the stone is viewed from different angles.
Saint Michael the Archangel is the defender of both Heaven and Earth, as well as the patron saint of police officers, the military, and grocers.
The Saint Benedict crucifix has a long history and a complex symbolism. The Order of Saint Benedict does the best job clearly explaining the details.
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!
