This rosary is especially valued for the soothing and healing quality that is inherent in the hematite gemstone beads. It is not just the metaphysical meaning of the hematite gemstone that adds a special something to this rosary. Its specialness, felt when holding it, is inbuilt into the polished shape and smoothness of the round hematite beads.
Materials for Hematite Rosary:
polished hematite beads (4mm, 6mm)
double sided rosary center - Sacred Heart, Virgin Mary (alloy metal)
wire - silver plated over brass; Pb & Ni Free
headpins - silver plated over copper
Rosary center has 2 distinct sides. It is made of alloy. Was part of my previous stock.
Rod and Bead handmade cross explains how this cross is made using wire coiling and wire-wrapping. I love the uncomplicated simplicity of this cross even though it is probably one of the easiest custom handmade crosses to create.
