If you wonder what it was like for Christ to pray amongst the olive trees, then using this olive wood rosary is a good choice. Not only does it come with a "Certificate of Authenticity", but the rosary centerpiece contains water from the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized. Each olive wood rosary is made in Bethlehem by Christian craftsmen by taking the pruned olive tree branches and carving them with simple tools. This carving tradition dates back to the time of the Crusades when artists from Europe settled in Bethlehem.

The skilled Bethlehem craftsmen infuse spiritual significance into each olive wood rosary. The length is 20-1/4 inches with a 1-5/8 inches tall crucifix that has a metal crucifix figure. On the metal back of the cross, letters spelling "Jerusalem" are placed vertically on the cross in capital letters. The centerpiece measures 5/8 of an inch with the Jordan River water on one side and Mary with baby Jesus on the other. There are five decades with truly beautiful, oval olive wood beads that are lightweight. A powerful gift for any Catholic.
