The Ave beads in this rosary are unusual 6mm green labradorite beads. I've never seen green labradorite before and these beads are quite pretty. In bright light many of them have a nice iridescence or "fire". The colors of this iridescence range from blue to green to yellow. I was able to catch some of this "fire" in the photos. Accenting the Ave beads are 10mm Swarovski Crystal pearls. Swarovski Simulate pearls are high quality faux pearls. They have a Swarovski crystal center covered by 4 layers of nacre ( pearly) coating. This gives them a beautiful glow.
The center honors St Brigid one of the patron saints of Ireland and the reverse of the center honors St Patrick. The crucifix is a Celtic crucifix with a Celtic know motif. The Celtic knot has long been an Irish symbol of immortality.
