AND GIVE THANKS  I
RLS  - LIVING STONES INDEX
 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!”
 +
WHAT IS LACE AGATE 'DZI'?
  8 mm 'lace agates, (some call these 'DZI' beads as did our Chinese vender - see below). Each carry the signature of God alone who spoke this stone into existence. We have used 'lace agates' and 'crazy lace agates' for many years but have never seen any quite like these. And doubt we will ever see them again. 
+
PLEASE NOTE:  Our Spiritual Advisor, Father Joe assures us - in the world of gemology - this stone belongs to the lace agate family, and often is identified further by color such as 'red fire lace agate'. These 'lace agates, (called by some, 'DZI')  are newly mined and marketed and have no history from any other culture. The Vender called them "heaven's bead" or "heaven's pearl" and by some, DZI means "shine, brightness, clearness, splendor." Again, these stones are the signature of the word of God.  They praise him alone!

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!”

AGATE 'DZI' - HEAVENS PEARLS
 AVE BEADS:  8 mm agates, some call these 'DZI' beads as did our vender. Dzi stones have been used for centuries and have special meanings in different parts of the world:. To some it means "shine, brightness, clearness, splendor." In Chinese, the bead is called "heaven's bead" or "heaven's pearl" 
+
PATER BEADS: Another great find at a recent Bead Show - from Czechoslovakia, these glass beads are designed by the venders wife - we love them! And love the way the antiqued filigree caps capture the bead and hold it in place! This bead is opaque although appears to be hollow or clear in the center.  It is actually a natural matte that carries the colors of the Ave beads. Flat beads are comforting to the touch, easy for prayer and meditation.

SIRACH 43:10-12
 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.
