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.
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.
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.
Our Lady of Lourdes appeared to Saint Bernadette in 1858, along with a spring of water associated with many miracles of healing. Lourdes was the apparition where Mary clarified her Immaculate Conception, and the grotto built at the site has become a major pilgrimage site.
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!
