More About 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.
Quartz is very likely the stone referred to as “crystal” in the Bible. It was prized for its transparent quality and was used to make both gems and lenses. Both Old and New Testaments use it in metaphors to describe things as shining, clear, and smooth. Even in Biblical times it was a common mineral, and it is often used when describing expansive things, like the firmament or the sea.
Hearts bring to mind both the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our heart is our center, the wellspring of our spirit and our emotions, and is to be closely guarded. It is the most referenced body part in the Bible.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary represents Mary’s three-part love---her virginal love for God the Father, her maternal love for God the Son, and her compassion for the entire world.
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.
A Three-Way Crucifix includes a pardon crucifix at the center, flanked by a Miraculous Medal and a Saint Benedict Medal.
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!
