The Ave beads in this rosary are 6mm faceted green goldstone beads. Also, these beads can appear black in very dim light but they come alive in bright light. In most of the photos, the beads appear black but actually they are a very dark green glass with flecks of silver foil in them. This foil makes the beads sparkle and dance in the light. I have been unable to catch this quality with my photos, but the white flecks you see in some of the beads is actually the silver foil reflecting light. If you look closely at some of the photos, you might be able to see the green color in some of the beads. The Pater beads are 6mm by 8mm Celtic knot beads. The Celtic knot is one of the Irish symbols of immortality.
The silver colored centerpiece honors both St Brigid and St Patrick. St Brigid is on the front of the center while St Patrick is on the reverse side. The silver colored crucifix is a traditional Celtic crucifix with a Celtic knot motif.
