More About This Rosary
Rhodonite's name comes from the Greek, rhodos, or "rose," and reflects its natural pink color.
Pink, especially as rose vestments, represents joy during a time of penance and prayer in Catholic tradition. It the color of deep contentment or happiness that cannot be subdued even amidst times of sadness.
Apatite is a hexagonal crystal with a Calcium Phosphate base, the same mineral base as our bones. It comes in many colors, though green and blue are the most common used as gemstones. It was used as a pigment in Emperor Qinshihuang’s famous terra cotta army, and is a common source for rare earth elements.
Blue is the color most associated with heaven and the most used color in the Tabernacle of the Temple. The Virgin Mary often wears blue in her apparitions, and it is the color of God’s divine grace.
The Miraculous Medal is based on an apparition of Our Lady of Grace to Sister Catherine Laboure. It contains an image of Mary with rays of graces extending from her hands with the words “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” On the back is a ring of twelve stars, the letter M surmounted by a cross, and two hearts---the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
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!
