Symbolism in This Rosary
Mookaite is an exclusively Australian stone found near the Mooka (Aboriginal for “Whitewater" River. It contains a wide variety of colors, with sections of brown, tan, yellow, purple, and white.
Pyrite derives its name for the Greek work for “fire,” and was used as a fire-starter in place of flint since prehistoric times, as it sparks when struck against iron or steel. Also called “fool’s gold,” its raw form resembles gold nuggets---it is actually, in its pure form, iron sulfide, and was mined to produce sulfur before sulfur was more easily obtained from oil.
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!
