Rosary with round polished quartz crystal Hail Mary beads and aqua blue teardrop-cut speckled glass Our Fathers, with a Holy Family center and an enamel-filled flared crucifix.
Symbolism in This Rosary
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.
Teardrops need little explanation. On a rosary they remind us of the Sorrowful Mother. We can remember that even Jesus cried, at Lazarus’ tomb, and that eventually He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death shall be no more.
Teal brings to mind the ocean and its vastness, and the symbolism within the Bible of water and renewal. It can remind us of our baptism and of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph is the model for all Christian families. Their fiat and their lives can inspire our own devotion and our prayers.
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!
