The gorgeous green-blue of chrysocolla is the perfectly colored backdrop to little dots of imbedded red cuprite in this uncommon rosary.  Both minerals are copper-rich and vitreous (glassy), so the beads have a handsome visual depth.  This rosary features long rice shaped Our Fathers which are double capped then wire wrapped in fumed red brass.  The antique reproduction bronze crucifix has trefoil accents, and while it's long, it's not so heavy that it's hard to carry.  A fun and happy rosary!
