Our Mother of Sorrows Rosary with Blue Goldstone

In this rosary, Our Mother of Sorrows is comforted by midnight blue beads that have flecks of metal that sparkle like the stars in the night sky. . The Aves are 6mm blue goldstone beads and the Pater beads are12mm blue goldstone beads. Goldstone is actually a misnomer because it is not stone. It is actually dark blue transparent glass that copper and silver foil flecks have been mixed into. The result is a beautiful, sparkly bead that dances in the light. I've have tried my best to capture the sparkly nature of these beads, but sadly the sparkles look like white specs in the beads.

The lead free pewter center is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. It features an image honoring Our Blessed Mother. It has a subtle luminosity that gives depth and beauty to the image. The intricate Trinity crucifix depicts the Father, Son and Holy Spirit both descending into and emanating out of the Eucharist. There is an angel on one end of the horizontal arm of the cross and the Virgin Mary on the other.   Please click here to learn more about this rosary and please visit my shop, to see more of my unbreakable rosary beads and chaplets.
