St Benedict was a very simple man. He had few, if any possessions and lived a disciplined life devoid of frills and non-essentials. Therefore, I have tried to keep this rosary simple in honor of St Benedict's asceticism.
The Ave beads are 6mm black onyx and the Pater beads are 12mm black labradorite with silver colored bead caps on either end. The labradorite is quite pretty and when the light hits them right, some of the beads have a nice iridescence or "fire". The St Benedict center and crucifix are silver colored metal.
