This exquisite rosary needs to be held in the hand to appreciate its true beauty. Th 10th of our series of birth stones that come from the ancient 12 tribes of Israel. VIRGO (Virgin) was the first, according to the Hebrew calendar, ending with LEO (Lion of Judah): . Giving God back what is his! The stars were read by the ancient desert people with great hope as the constellations pointed to the coming of the Jewish Messiah. God’s own son, Jesus Christ.The traditional 12 birthstones have origins in Scripture. (12 gemstones worn on the Breast Plate of the High Priest represent the 12 tribes of Israel. (Ex:28,15-30) and set in the order of their birth as ordered by God himself!
AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY The stones used here represent the ones designated by the American Gem Society in the 1930’s. (the original 12 stones carried vague names, some of which were generic, others named after the place of origin (Turquoise / Turkey) We also note that different interpretations of scripture are not consistent in names and placement.
ABOUT CHRYSOPRASE: Chrysoprase is in the family of chalcedony, a fibrous form of quartz. Due to its comparative scarcity and pleasing green color (may range from apple green to dark green), it is one of the most prized varieties of quartz. The higher grades often rival fine jade, for which it is sometimes mistaken. It carries traces of nickel which adds to its coloration. It is found in Queensland, Western Australia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Arizona, California, and Brazil.
Not just for birthdays in JUNE – this is a wonderful rosary for anyone who loves to pray.
