Rosary Bracelet with Bronze Miraculous Medal and White Magnesite

The AvĂ© beads in this bracelet are 10mm white magnesite. These beautiful beads are white with tan and black veins in them. White magnesite is often wrongly termed white turquoise. White turquoise is relatively rare and only comes from the US Southwest.  It is quite expensive.   Magnesite is more common, but no less beautiful. Click here to learn more about this bracelet and please visit my shop, Holy Name Rosaries, to view more of my rosaries and rosary bracelets.
Contrasting the magnesite Aves is the 10mm mahogany obsidian Pater bead. The Miraculous medal, crucifix and toggle clasp are antiqued brass. This bracelet would make a wonderful gift. It would also be great to keep for yourself.
