The St. Benedict medal, with its famous Latin prayer of protection as part of the centerpiece of this special rosary. The black beads are made of carved wood and measure 6x8mm. The rosary features a St. Benedict crucifix with black enamel accents, and a St. Benedict medal centerpiece. It comes in a clear plastic topped box with white plastic base. This rosary measures approximately 22 inches from the loop in the middle of the third decade to the tip of the crucifix. The crucifix itself measures approximately 2 inches by 1 1/4 inch.
This makes an elegant gift for young men for Confirmation. Nicely made.

The black, wooden beads are beautiful and, as they are barrel beads, have a nice feel as you say the rosary. The crucifix and centerpiece are detailed, well-made, and beautiful. I use this rosary every day instead of the ones I already have.
