A detailed description of the semi-precious beads used within the rosary:

Red Coral - Coral has been called the 'garden of the sea'. Records dating back thousands of years confirm that coral was used in decorative art objects. It was believed to prevent ill fortune and offer protection. Dreams about coral are believed to foretell recovery from a long illness. Coral is a good aid for meditation or visualization. It is used as an aid to depression or lethargy. Swarovski Pearls - These beautiful Swarovski CRYSTALLIZED™ pearls have a similar weight and lustre as the very best natural pearls. Swarovski describe their crystal pearls as the perfect imitation of genuine pearls. They have a crystal core with innovative pearl coating to simulate the look and feel of the real article. They are resistant to rubbing, perfume, sweat and UV light. They also warm to the skin like real pearls do. Amethyst - Believed to be a meditative and calming stone, working in the emotional, spiritual and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience and peace. Bloodstone - In the Middle Ages, bloodstone was attributed special powers as the spots were thought to be the blood of Jesus Christ. It was used in sculptures representing flagellation and martyrdom. It's a good grounding stone with protective qualities. Considered a powerful healing stone, believed to aid balance and renewal.
