Symbolism in This Roary
Carnelian, also known as sardius, is the sixth foundation stone of Revelation’s New Jerusalem, and is also used in Revelation to describe the Lord. It has a long history of use by royalty, with a strand of carnelian beads from 3100 BC discovered in Egypt.
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.
Tiger’s-Eye is a brown stone of the quartz group that displays “chatoyancy,” or a changing of colors as the stone is viewed from different angles.
Saint Michael the Archangel is the defender of both Heaven and Earth, as well as the patron saint of police officers, the military, and grocers.
The pardon crucifix was approved by Pope Saint Pius X in 1905 with five different indulgences granted through its use.
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!
