Decima (Decade) Chaplets

Our Lady of Mercy chaplet with vintage Our Lady of Mercies/Ransom medal

In this one-of-a-kind design, the beads of this decima chaplet evoke the twin rays of light emerging from the Divine Mercy image of Jesus painted my Sr. Faustina, a Sister of Our Lady of Mercy.  The Aves are crystal/ruby cathedral glass, crowned with bronze.  The Pater bead is handmade Venetian lampwork, with white blossoms and gold leaf layered onto ruby glass.  The decima is completed with a bronze medal of Our Lady of Mercy, cast from an antique.

In this one-of-a-kind design, the traditional black beads of the Marian order have been replaced with sterling-capped 10mm nuggets of precious  larimar , a  rare stone found only in the Dominican Republic, my grandmother's homeland.  These precious stones reflect the soft aqua swirls of the Caribbean ocean which laps gently at fine sand beaches.  The life-giving theme of water is continued with the spacers: mother of pearl nuggets and Swarovski crystals of Pacific Opal.   The substantial, 2.25", sterling crucifix is in the style of famed medal designer Ferdinand Py.

About Larimar

Larimar is an extremely rare gemstone that has been found in only one location: in a mountainous, relatively inaccessible region of the Dominican Republic overlooking the Caribbean Sea. This gemstone first surfaced in 1974, although the inhabitants of the region and their ancestors have long been aware of the stone.

Legend has it that they used to simply collect these stones on the beach, but one day they couldn't find anymore. They went to explore upstream, and came upon a rock formation that seemed to be the source of this blue precious stone.

The name Larimar was given to the stone by a Dominican, Miguel Méndez, who combined his daughter's name LARIssa, with MAR, the Spanish word for sea. The stone is also called the Atlantis Stone, since a wise prophet once claimed that the Dominican Republic was part of the lost continent of Atlantis, an association that has been affirmed by various spiritual and metaphysical authorities.
