Our Lady of Charity Rosary Beads by Unbreakable Rosaries

Just listed at Unbreakable Rosaries - Our Lady of Charity bronze rosary beads in cherry quartz. Our Lady of Charity - also known as La Virgen de La Caridad de Cobre- is the patron of Cuba. 

The town of El Cobre in Cuba was founded in 1550 as a Spanish copper mine, worked by slaves and Indians. One day in 1608, two Indians and a slave boy were gathering salt on the coast near El Cobre when they saw something floating in the water. It was a small statue of the Virgin Mary, carrying the Christ child and a gold cross. She floated on a board bearing the inscription, Yo soy la Virgen de la Caridad - "I am the Virgin of Charity."
