The seven-decade Franciscan Crown Rosary commemorates the seven joys of the Blessed Virgin. Instructions for praying it are given on the shop's policies page, and a pamphlet will also be sent with the rosary.

The Ave beads of this Franciscan rosary are 6mm faceted glass rounds in tortoise shell coloring - a mix of black, brown and amber. The Pater beads are "pinched" ovals of opaque black glass about 9mm long. I especially like pinched beads for rosaries, because they give the finger a natural resting place. Filling out the rosary are dark amber colored seed beads.

The center and crucifix were both made in Italy. The center is lead-free pewter; it has an image of St. Francis on the front, and the Tau cross as he used it for his signature on the reverse. The crucifix is a silver-tone San Damiano cross; on the reverse is the blessing from Numbers (which St. Francis also used) in Latin. The English translation of the blessing is:

The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord show his face to you and have mercy on you.
The Lord turn His countenance to you and give you peace.

The measurement from the bottom of the cross to the middle of the rosary is 18 inches (46cm). It's on the small side for a Crown rosary, great for carrying. It comes in a black velvet drawstring bag and a gold foil gift box.
