This large rosary of natural coral and 10 mm Bodhi seems as if should be heavy but is surprisingly light in the hand. The 9th 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.
Not just for birthdays in MAY – this is a wonderful rosary for anyone who loves to pray.
