This pocket version of the Stations of the Cross chaplet features 14 10mm hematite beads. Hematite looks very much like metal, but is actually a mineral composed largely of ferrous oxide. Genuine hematite is slightly magnetic and is quite heavy. It gives this chaplet a nice substantial feel. Each of the beads is wrapped in wire that has 99.9% pure silver plated onto it. The crucifix is a third class relic with some dirt from the foot of the cross. The back of the crucifix features intricately carved Stations of the Cross with an image of the Eucharist in the center. The medal honors Our Lord as the Suffering Servant and the reverse of the medal honors Our Lady of Sorrows also known as the Mater Dolorosa.
