February is overflowing with purple for those born in the shortest month. Amethyst chips, purple tiger-eye and a collection of various purple beads are combined to awaken our hearts to prayer. 24-inch length. Includes a matching drawstring pouch. This rosary can also be given as a February birthstone rosary.
This was a gift to my daughter before Easter Vigil this year. The rosary is beautiful, but larger than I had imagined; and my only criticism is that the crucifix itself is rather thin and "cheap" looking. I did have my daughter's initials engraved on the back of the crucifix, and the engraving was well done. Best Uses: Gift; Cons: Crucific disappointing; Pros: Color, Design, Quality
Funny experience with this Rosary

One of the sections in my Rosary only has 9 beads/stones instead of 10. It's a unique one for sure. I thought about sending it back, but decided against it. :-)

Although the rosary is beautiful, it is much larger than we anticipated. Because of the shapes of the stones/beads it is also difficult to tell which ones represent the prayers. Perhaps that is just a matter of becoming more familiar with it.
