This is my Czech glass June Birthstone rosary. Although this rosary is made using Czech glass, the traditional birthstone for June is the Pearl (and added more recently: Alexandrite). Natural pearls can be found in fresh water and salt water. They are very delcate, so much so that they can be easily damaged by regular exposure to the oils from your skin. Although easy to come by, it is difficult to find natural pearls that are strong enough, and have holes big enough to be used for making rosaries. Natural Alexandrite is a stone that is in high demand. The naturally formed color changing stone is nearly impossible to find in bead form, but luckily we have a glass version to make up for it. :)
This rosary can be made with either the 6mm pearl Aves or the 8mm pearl Aves, depending upon your preference.
All of my glass rosaries are fully customizable and ~made to order~, so please allow an extra day or two for completion before shipping. And remember....every full-sized, hand made, Speziale rosary also comes with a special prayer card and a drawstring pouch for easy storage. Also, if you need more than I have listed here please let me know before you purchase so that I can check availability and update the listing for you. :)
