The Ave beads in this rosary are 8mm Connemara Marble beads imported directly from Ireland. While there are 4 different kinds of marble indigenous to Ireland, Connemara Marble is the only one that is most commonly associated with the Emerald Isle. These beads are an olive green with darker bands and patches of serpentine and white patches. They have a waxy surface which is one of the characteristics of Connemara Marble. Many of the beads are not perfectly round, this only adds to the charm of the rosary. The Pater bead is pewter with a Celtic Knot motif. The medal honors Our Lady of Knock. The crucifix is a traditional Irish Celtic cross. This rosary is under 13 1/2 inches long Both the medal and the crucifix are silver colored metal.
