WHAT IS RUBY ZOISITE?
 Ruby zoisite is a relatively new gemstone, discovered as an ornamental stone only about 200 years ago. It is a natural combination of ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. Zoisite is the same mineral as tanzanite, as found in Tanzania. One of the most delightfully colorful stones found. There isn't another stone like it in the mineral world.  One smiles, thinking of Gods delight as he spoke these treasures into existence!

SIRACH 43:10-12
 10 A weapon against the flood waters stored on high, lighting up the firmament by its brilliance, 11  Behold the rainbow! Then bless its Maker, for majestic indeed is its splendor; 12  It spans the heavens with its glory, this bow bent by the mighty hand of God.
 +
CREATURES OF GOD
GOD SPOKE - THE EARTH RESPONDED
Think of all the treasures that still sleep beneath the crust of the earth - all coming from the word of God - he spoke and the earth responded to his word. They are his creatures. The same God word that created the Word, Jesus! The same God who created each of us. And all his creatures, his created, sing praise God's promise. We thank God for His glory and His word which is true.
+
JOB 12:8 (Tanakh)
  8  Or speak to the earth, it will teach you; The fish of the sea, they will inform you. 
 +
MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD
Think of it!  the semi precious stones used in these rosaries are millions of years old and were spoken into existence by the word of God! They are his creatures. Rosaries in this collection that are made from these gemstones are often strung in their natural form as chunks or chips reminding us of the early church fathers who used pebbles to count their prayers. 
+
ONE STONE AT A TIME
We picture the desert fathers using these pebbles, but unlike ours, their counting stones were probably unstrung and kept in a leather pouch!  But you will also see more elegant, faceted stones that reveal their individual and inner beauty. Ever changing selection, most are limited editions, when gone, unable to replace. 

LUKE.19:39-40

 39  Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

RUBY ZOISITE JADE
 AVE BEADS:   this natural 8 mm bead is a stone mix called,'ruby zoisite jade', from Brazil.  Over the last few centuries it has carried various names but remains one on f the most colorful of all the minerals.  Each faceted but hard to tell as the camera seems to be more interested in picking up the variegation colors of 'jade' and ruby.  PATER BEADS: Garnet chunks are also rare beauties.  One side of each stone is left naturally rough, other side beautifully polished and faceted, showing off its natural beauty. (In a way , reminders of our inner self and outer self!) Of these natural, Garnet chunks, no two ever alike.
