Description
 
This 16-inch rosary features a Marian centerpiece and crucifix carved out of light jujube wood.  Each of its Our Father beads is cross-shaped and engraved with an image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Beads are 8mm in diameter.  Crucifix, centerpiece, and beads are made of jujube wood.  These Jujube Wood and Wood rosaries are all hand made using durable cord. The centerpieces and crucifixes are all precisely laser cut. These rosaries have a great feel to them and are designed to be prayed with for a very long time.  WHAT IS JUJUBE WOOD?  There are about 100 species of jujube composed of trees and shrubs found chiefly in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world.  Christ's Thorn Jujube (Ziziphus spina-christi) is one of these.  This spiny tree grows in Israel in all valleys and lowlands.  The tree and its parts appear to have been in use in Pharaonic industry (carpentry), diet and medicine.  In Christian tradition the tree was identified with the thorn bush with which Jesus was crowned before his crucifixion.  This is also the source for the scientific name (spina-christi).  Christian pilgrims took branches of the tree back to their homeland as souvenirs in the belief that Jesus's crown of thorns was made from such branches.  The wood is heavy and durable and serves for artistic woodwork.
