These rosaries are handmade by the monks of Silverstream Priory with high quality natural African Turquoise 'Our Father' beads and Jujube wood decade beads and a sturdy St Benedict Crucifix.
This rosary takes its name from the Latin phrase for 'orb of the earth', inspired by the Turquoise coloration. The coloration of each bead varies. Please note that the crucifixes are a slightly different for the two size options.
According to some traditions, Our Lord’s crown of thorns was made from one of the varieties of Jujube tree which is native to Palestine. The beads that our rosaries are made with are a deep, warm brown in colour and vary slightly in hue, some touched with a slightly lighter reddish brown. Their finish is glossy.
