Our Compassion of Mary rosary is a five decade holy rosary created as an act of devotion. Pray the mysteries on natural tumbled peridot, jade and rosy copper. For your Apostles Creed, this hand wrought copper cross is as solid as your faith.
In the Hawaiian Islands, peridot was thought to be the tears of Goddess Pele. Even Cleopatra felt these stone kept dark spirits at bay. Peridot is the stone of inner peace and harmony, and it is the birthstone for the month of August. Jade is viewed as the stone that blesses all who hold it. It’s influence is seen as gentle and consistent, much like the Blessed Mother. Copper has it’s own antimicrobial properties that are increasingly appreciated in high-touch public areas. In this case, the blessings of jade and the protection of copper lend their strength to the Divine, healing and protecting through prayer.
Compassion of Mary rosary measures approximately 23 inches around the loop, with an additional 6 inches for the pendant from the top of the centerpiece to the bottom of the cross. The stones are natural tumbled peridot with nephrite jade between each decade. They are approximately 7 mm each, hand beaded onto solid copper wire. This is a larger rosary weighing 52 grams (2 ounces).
Copper will patina over time, revealing highlights with your touch. This process is natural; Use of corrosive solvents or dips is not recommended.
