Sold, thank you!
Nephrite is a type of true jade. This high quality nephrite, from British Columbia, is a beautiful, grassy green with a good deal of translucency uncommon for this type. The coolest thing about nephrite is that its structure forms like complex webbing, which makes it an extremely strong mineral. This rosary was designed as a portable gentleman's rosary, and is constructed with hand-oxidized solid Sterling wire and rings. The chain segments are slightly longer than I use in most of my 6mm rosaries, to more easily accommodate a man's fingers. Easy care with a solid feel and a very attractive look!
