Old rosary, brass chain links, what appear to be garnet beads (feel weighty like stones but I'm not sure), garnet color but may be glass. Each bead looks unique and blood red garnet color about the size of petite split peas. This fabulous rosary sparkles in the light due to the many facets on each bead. It measures 29" total and the cross is marked on the back with "WJF XXX". You'll love this rosary!
