The Ave beads in this rosary are 8mm fancy agate beads. These beads are varying shades of green ranging from off white to dark green. Because these beads are natural stone, some of them have small dimples and other small imperfections. The Pater beads are 12 mm magnesite. Many sellers mistakenly refer to magnesite as white turquoise. Please know that white turquoise is extremely rare and is very expensive.
The center honors St Brigid one of Ireland's Patron Saints, and it has an image of St Patrick on the back. Both the center and the crucifix is silver colored metal. The wire is fine silver plated onto copper. Because these are natural stone, no two beads are exactly alike. Therefore, the actual beads in the rosary will slightly different from the beads in the photo. The difference is so small that it isn't noticeable.
