Symbolism in This Roary
Goldstone is actually no stone, but a glittering glass infused with copper. Sometimes called monkstone from folklore associating its creation with a monastic order, it is also at times called gold sandstone. Its silica beginnings and sandy quality evoke wanderings in the desert, and its shimmering reminds us of God’s presence even when we are lost.
Sodalite is beautiful blue and white stone that has a recent history, being discovered in Greenland and later northern Ontario. It looks a bit like clouds on a sunny day---a joyful blue.
Brown reminds us of the earth, of the dust from which we are formed, of the sands of time, and of the trunks and branches of trees. There is a strength to it; it serves as a point of origin and foundation, and sustains and supports us into the future.
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 Sorrowful Mother crucifix depicts Our Lady collecting the blood of Our Lord and Her Son into a chalice, a heart-rending representative depiction of her role in leading us to her son through the mass.
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!
