This chaplet begins with a small, but very detailed, Italian 'grapes' crucifix, followed by three sets of 3 (9 total) 6mm tree agate beads and ends with a 5/8" Italian medal of St. Martin de Porres. The caps and tube spacers are of lead-free Tibetan silver. Each bead is wrap-looped using nickel silver wrapping wire for maximum strength and durability. It's just 10.5" long and will fit into any pocket, or purse. This chaplet will last a lifetime of normal use and would make a beautiful gift of faith for anytime of the year! I'll include a St. Martin prayer card, instructions for praying the 'niner' chaplet and a drawstring organza pouch with your purchase.
