Beautiful pure white shell surrounds lovely blue natural Sodalite like the Sea of Galilea.
Starfish, scallops, fish, and the dove that appeared over Jesus at his Baptism adorn this unique Rosary. The scallop is the symbol of Baptism and the Blessed Mother; the fish: Jesus' promise to his disciples: "Come after Me, and I will make you fishers of men!"
The sand dollar at the center reminds us of The Legend of the Sand Dollar: Christ's birth (Poinsettia flower) on front, his crucifixion on reverse, with five wounds on hand, feet, and drop from the spear, and when broken, out falls five white "doves", reminiscent of the five Mysteries of the Rosary, and the dove sent out from Noah's Ark.
Of course underlining God's promises and symbols for Christ in these various creations is the Blessed Mother's presence in all of these as well: she is the New Ark of the Covenant, her symbol is the scallop shell, and one of her many beloved titles is, "Mary, Star of the Sea"- as the whimsical starfish remind us.
Makes a memorable gift, and is very beautiful to hold and contemplate all of God's goodness toward us.
