The beads used in this inviting rosary are a deep cherry red, with very nice surfaces and a glassy polish.  I suspect they are almandine garnets, which is a common type in this color and are often more opaque than other garnet types. Indoors, the beads are a uniform dark red, and the openwork bronze parts and filigree bead caps add a lightness to the design so it's not too somber.  This rosary is durable and sized to carry along, and it definitely has that "instant antique" look that many find desirable.  Charming!
