The first rosary on my web-site was in remembrance of September 11th ; labradorite captured the smoke and dust that filled the day, darkening but not obscuring flashes of brilliant blue sky.  And so it is a fitting stone to commemorate the ongoing conflict in Iraq.

In the rosary above, labradorite holds both smoky grays, and brilliant flashes of celestial blue.  The Aves are 8mm facetted rounds, and the Paters are 12mm facetted chunks.  

In a unique configuration, the centerpiece is Sacred Heart, and the Queen of Peace pendant is a stunning, 1.5" sterling  medal detailing the apparition of Our Lady to the young children tending their sheep.
