Handmade five decade Catholic Rosary. The Paters are 13mm rectangular agate stones with layers of white and light blue. The Paters are accentuated by clear Czech crystals ant tiny sapphire blue crystals. The Ave beads are hard-to-find Montana blue Grade A 8mm cateyes (also known as fiber optic beads). In between the blue Aves are white 3mm cateyes used as spacer beads. Cateye beads change hue as they capture and reflect light. They have a band of light running through the center that resembles a cat's eye. The centerpiece is handmade by the artist and is a one of a kind piece consisting of an image of Our Lady of Lourdes, centered in a silver plate antique pendant. The crucifix is two-sided and heavy, brass on silver, heavily plated, cast from an antique mold.
