The striking Ave beads in this rosary are reconstituted howlite. These beads are tan and blue, the colors of earth and sky, accented by a black matrix. These are the perfect colors for the Patron Saint of the environment. The Pater beads are 20mm by 8mm bohemian glass from Czechoslovakia . There is an image of a flower pressed into the glass which has a black background with turquoise colored highlights. The center honoring St Kateri Tekakwitha is silver colored metal as is the geometric crucifix.

The Ave beads in this striking vintage style rosary are 8mm cloisonne jasper. These unusual beads are comprised of dark translucent stone mixed with adventurine glass. Many of these beads have dimples and depressions which only add to the vintage look of the rosary. The Pater beads are 9mm handmade bronze Bali beads. They are a perfect match for the jasper. The hand cast bronze crucifix and center are exact replicas of antique pieces. The wire is antiqued bronze wire.
