This lovely rose quartz rosary celebrates Our Lady of the Snows:  an amazing snowfall which occurred in early August 352 AD on the Esquiline Hill in Rome.  The National Shrine of OL of the Snows has a nice description of the miracle, which you might enjoy reading. In this piece, a bronze OL of the Snows center crowns Holy Mary with a snowflake. Representing summer are the floral cast bronze caps on the Our Father beads. These rosary beads are made with rose quartz from Madagascar, and are a soft blush pink. The barrel-shaped Paters have straight facets along their length. An enchanting rosary with a lovely drape, wonderful for ladies!
