This St. Benedict crucifix is 3" long. It is silver plated with black epoxy. The St. Benedict medal has red, blue and white epoxy and includes a cord for wearing. Comes boxed in a plastic box with a clear top.
I bought this for my husband for our 30th wedding anniversary. I haven't given it to him yet, but am saving it for the Mass when our priest will bless our marriage. I think it's absolutely beautiful, and even a bit bigger than I imagined, which is a good thing! I know hubby will love it!!!
Most Beautiful St Benedict Crucifix

I purchased two of these beautiful St Benedict Crucifix. They are the most colorful of any of the St Bendict Crufix Styles I have seen to date.
This will make the 5th that I have but only two are of the ones in color and I am so proud to wear them they are so much more vibrant than the other ones I have.
Thank You for having them available and continuing to carry such great products.

This crucifix looks fantastic if just briefly glanced at. However, upon close inspection it has numerous flaws. First, the casting is poor and you can see (and feel) jagged ridges around the edges. Second, the painting is poor as there is black enamel on places that are supposed to be silver, with an especially big blob on the end of the right-hand portion of the cross beam. Third, the corpus, while well cast itself, is obviously nickel and not silver because parts of mine have turned green (the inside of Our Lord's legs). Also the ring to attach a necklace is in such a position that the crucifix does not lay very flat and turns to the side if you lean forward. I found that last quality to be very annoying. Overall, I expected more from a well designed (from an aesthetic point of view) crucifix made in Italy. Cons: Low Quality; Pros: Durable, Good Value
