There are things I don't know about the beads making up this five-decade Catholic rosary, but I do know that the colors involved have a lot of depth. The Hail Mary beads are 8mm smooth stone rounds dyed a deep teal. I'm not sure, but I think they're made of what's called "fossil" stone, which contains minute fossils that allow the stone to take dye especially well.

The Our Father beads are 20mm flat rounds of shell with a floral design. The background is brown, with a teal and beige design. Because the iridescence of the shell doesn't show well with indirect light, I've used a flash photo as the fifth picture in this listing; the stone beads show as lighter than they really are in this picture, but the shell beads look more as they really do. I don't know how the design is applied to the shell, but I would guess dying rather than papering over, because the shell iridescence is still obvious.

Blue-green seed beads fill out the rosary and add some sparkle to the deep colors.

The center and crucifix are both silver tone. The center has a 3-dimensional Madonna and Child, with a childlike Mary; the reverse has a smaller image of the Sacred Heart. The crucifix is made of curved lines that give it the impression of cutwork; it was made in Italy.

The measurement from the bottom of the crucifix to the middle of the rosary is 18.5 inches (48cm). The stone beads give the rosary a nice weight without being overly heavy. It comes in a black velvet drawstring bag and a gold foil gift box.
