Hematite and Carnelian 6/8mm beads
This feels great, the heft of the cross is particularly good as you work through your prayers
I have 8 different sets of beads from Full Circle and they are all absolutely stunning!!!
Hematite has a specific gravity of 5.3 compared to most 'rocks' which have a specific gravity between about 2.5 and 3.0. So hematite beads are heavy. The beads have perfectly smooth, almost glassy surfaces, no cracks or fissures. Their 'heft' make them excellent for a set of prayer beads. Good choices for your 8TH ROSARY!
Sturdy. Very nice beads. I like the weight of the hematite.
