Made of quartz crystals, this rosary is just stunning! The quartz crystal beads are varied in shades, but combine rust, brown and bronze. Bouncing off the illumination of the crystal decade beads, tiny glimmering crystals peak through each Hail Mary bead. The color combination is so attractive, yet doesn't detract from the focus of the crucifix and centerpiece, which illustrates a chalice and the Eucharist. What a wonderful gift for a special ocassion: Marriage, adult reception of a sacrament or special anniversary.
