CROSS OF SANTIAGO de COMPOSTELA: (thanks to Maura C who shared: [This] Shell Crucifix (see rosary center) is the Cross of Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain. The shell was the emblem picked up by the Pilgrim en route and the stylized Cross on the Shell centerpiece is said to be a copy of the sword wielded by St. James (St. Diego) the Moorslayer when he appeared miraculously mounted on a white charger to help Charlemagne rid Spain of the Moors. (The Cross is always depicted in red.)
