Aventurine Faceted Rosary
Green Aventurine is a variety of quartz that gives off a subtle shimmering or glistening effect due to inclusions of Mica or other minerals. It is known as the "Stone of Opportunity," Its name is derived from the Italian "a ventura" or "all’avventura", which means “by chance”. It refers to an Italian glass from the 1700s, that was accidentally produced when a worker dropped metal filings into a vat of melting glass. Once cooled, people loved the randomly spaced iridescent sparkles and started using the stone in jewelry making. The name "Aventurine" was given to the natural stone which so closely resembled the industrial material.
This gorgeous green aventurine rosary is made with 8mm faceted Hail Marys and 10mm faceted Our Fathers. The Our Fathers are capped with Bali Silver bead caps and encased with Swarovski crystal rondelles. It carries a Miraculous Medal center and a 2" crucifix that may be engraved. #163
This Rosary & ALL my Rosaries are made from Sterling Silver wire, handmade loops, and a closed jump ring between each bead to keep your Rosary from crimping. The Center and Crucifix are solid Sterling Silver so you are guaranteed an heirloom quality Rosary to pray your prayers throughout the decades.
Your rosary will come packed in a velvet-lined, handmade pouch and cardboard box with padding. The pouch fabric and colors will vary for each rosary and is my special treat for you.
