Absolutely gorgeous hand-sketched and artistically hand-carved in relief Crucifix Palm Cross and Red Cherry Creek Jasper Gemstone rosary. LOVE this! The palm cross is attached to the rosary by a 2mm leather cord and is perfect sized to hold in the palm of your hand and find comfort. You can run your fingers over the relief carving of our Crucified Lord.
I have designed these larger rosaries for personal prayer or small group prayer. What a beautiful rosary for a couple or a parent and child to share! I also imagine a beautiful prayer experience with a bedridden loved one holding the cross for comfort while someone else prays on the rosary beads.
The Red Cherry Creek Jasper gemstones have so much variation and character while blending the warm tones together beautifully. The Our Father beads are faceted nugget shaped Red Cherry Creek Jasper gemstones while the Hail Mary beads are 12mm faceted round gemstones. Red Cherry Creek Jasper is a gorgeous gemstone with tans, creams, browns, cranberries and greens.
The cross is a copyrighted ByRon PalmCross original. They are hand-carved from American Black Walnut and each one is one-of-a-kind. The front and back surfaces are slightly curved to fit into the "palm" of the hand. No varnish or lacquer is applied, so the oils from the hands holding the PalmCross become the finish. Every cross is numbered on the back with the year of copyright (1997), the year it was carved, and the number carved of that style (Crucifix). These are amazing crosses and "the Cadillac of" palm or comfort crosses!
The palm cross is 5 and 1/4 inches high, 4 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. The rosary laid flat at the longest point is 26 and 1/2 inches.
This comes in a quality gift box.
