St Kateri Tekakwitha Rosary offered by Holy Name Rosaries is offering this beautiful rosary honoring St Kateri Tekakwitha  The Ave beads in this rosary are small 6mm African turquoise beads. While African turquoise is the common name for this stone, it isn't actually turquoise. It is a form of jasper that is mined in Africa. Because its teal color and black matrix is so similar to turquoise it is referred to as turquoise and is used as a turquoise substitute. Also, these beautiful little beads measure 6mm, but they are on the small side. The result is a dainty rosary that has a nice light feel to it. The Pater beads are 8mm black onyx flanked by 4mm black onyx. The center and the crucifix are both silver colored metal.  Please click here to learn more about this rosary and please visit my shop, to see more of my unbreakable wire wrapped rosaries.
