The first time I saw green goldstone, I was captivated by it - and knew it would have to become a rosary. Like other colors of goldstone, it's sometimes considered a semiprecious stone, but it's really glass with copper inclusions. Brown goldstone is pretty, blue goldstone is beautiful, but green goldstone is amazing. When looked at without direct lighting, it's a very dark, almost black, solid green. But when light shines on or through it, it shows flashes of green fire. It's something of an optical illusion - the sparkles are really on the surface of an opaque bead, but the impression is of green flashes deep inside the beads. I've tried to capture a bit of the effect in the last photo here, but it's not even close to doing it justice.

Anyway, both the Ave and Pater beads of this five-decade Catholic rosary are faceted rounds of green goldstone. The Ave beads are 8mm. The Pater beads are 10mm and are accented by gold-plated "daisy" beadcaps. Dark green seed beads fill out the rosary.

The center and crucifix are both gold tone. The center was made in Italy and is a Miraculous Medal with a floral border. The crucifix is a simple traditional style, with a cross-hatch texture as the background of the cross.

The measurement from the bottom of the crucifix to the middle of the rosary is 15.5 inches (39cm). The rosary comes in a black velvet drawstring bag and a gold foil gift box.
