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.
Labradorite was first discovered at Paul’s Island (originally Isle de St. Paul), Labrador, by Moravian missionaries exploring after establishing a nearby settlement. 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. It is a grey stone, and its labradorescene often comes in a blue otherworldly shine that appears deep in the stone.
The Holy Face of Jesus is an image based on the Shroud of Turin. Devotion to the Holy Face is most associated with Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face, and she has written many prayers of devotion to Christ’s Holy Face and pinned an image of it over her heart.
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!
