A Dominican style Rosary with a pagan twist! With its lack of traditional Christian iconography, almost any faith can find solace in this dark and beautiful Rosary since only the concept and structure remain. The "Aves" are composed of shimmering gunmetal grey-black genuine hematite gemstone beads(called "blood stone" by the ancients, because of the red iron oxide rust that "bleeds" from the stone when cut). The 6 "Paters" are double-sided antiqued silver pewter crescent moons, symbolizing the eternal cycles of nature. The bottom features a beautiful double-sided openwork pewter pentacle (5-pointed star or pentagram) centre connector to represent the Goddess/wisdom/elements, and an ornate double-sided 1 1/2 inch (3.8cm) high antiqued silver zinc alloy pewter Egyptian ankh cross to invoke the creative energy of life. Chain and connectors are antique silvertone plated brass. No clasp, it can easily be slipped over the head.
Length: approx. 28" (71cm), not including pendant section
