Red Jasper and Bronze
10-Bead Handmade Chaplet

"Charity is at the heart of the Church's social doctrine.  Every responsibility and every commitment spelt out by that doctrine is derived from charity, which, according to the teaching of Jesus, is the synthesis of the entire Law."

"Charity is everything because, as Saint John teaches... God is love."
  -- Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, #2
  -- Matthew 22:36-40
  -- John 4:8-16

The large, simple cross of this chaplet is hand-cast from a Coptic antique, in solid bronze.  (Please see detail photos, below.)

To represent charity, an open hand is attached to the front of the cross.  The little brass hand is Indian. 

The Pater and Ave beads are red jasper, with occasional streaks of gray.  Among these are beads of matte glass in various blue-grays, and beads of solid brass.

The connecting rings are brass and bronze.  The chaplet is strung on premium quality Soft Flex jewelers' cable, composed of 49 strands of steel encased in nylon, with a test strength of 26 pounds;  each end is double-crimped for security.

Cross:  2"
Hand:  .9"
Aves and Pater:  about 8mm
