This polished brass pyx features a pewter cross with a red center stone affixed to the lid. The spring hinge securely stores the Holy Eucharist, while allowing easy access. The pyx measures 1/2" x 2-1/4"
I'm very happy with the quality and functionality of this pyx. I had it engraved--which is beautiful and so adds to my satisfaction in my purchase. There was an excess of (?) perhaps an engraving or polishing white dust on the pyx. The stone was dull with this powder on it. It did wash off but took a some gentle buffing to restore completely. The engraving was worth this extra bit of effort.

Holds 8 hosts easily, in a gorgeous pyx that will inspire you.
Nice size for Daily use

This is a beautiful Pyx. However, the material is very thin, and it is easily dented by just tapping on it. It is the right size for Sundays only. I am not sure if it would hold up to daily use.
It is the right size for your pocket, but again I am concerned about its durability.

I could not have asked for a nicer Pyx at a better price. Thank you so much for offering this product. It has a special place in our ministry efforts and allows us to bring the Eucharist to those who can attend our Mass. Best Uses: Hosptial visits, Prision visits, Shut-in visits; Pros: Great price, Lovely, Well Made
