Via Dolorosa - Black Tourmaline Quartz Rosary Beads

Luminous Legacies:

The Via Dolorosa, Black Tourmaline Quartz Rosary Beads are deeply inspired by Jesus' journey. Firstly, they merge black and white tourmaline, symbolizing a journey from darkness to light and signifying a fresh start. Secondly, the black streaks in the beads reflect life's challenges and our flaws, much like the hardships faced on the Via Dolorosa.

Moreover, in contrast to the black streaks, the clear quartz beads represent purity and hope, signaling a hopeful conclusion to the journey. Additionally, these beads are more than tools for prayer; they guide us from confusion to peace and grace. They are invaluable for meditation and spiritual development, echoing the Via Dolorosa's message about overcoming adversity and finding hope.

Furthermore, these beads encourage contemplation and provide comfort during prayer or meditation. They are a cherished item for anyone on a spiritual journey, symbolizing both the struggles and triumphs of life.

Materials & Care

Gold Filled:

Gold-filled is made by bonding a layer of 14- or 12-karat gold to a brass core, creating a tarnish-resistant surface with only gold visible. The metals are fused using heat and pressure and then shaped to specific sizes. The gold content is 5% by weight, and this type of metal cannot be cast. Gold filled has a much thicker layer of gold over the base metal compare to gold plated.

Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver is composed of 92.5% pure silver, with the remaining portion typically being copper, added to enhance the silver's strength. Recognized as a precious metal, sterling silver is prone to tarnishing, a natural chemical reaction that happens when silver comes into contact with air. Fortunately, this tarnishing can be easily reversed.


While Sterling silver is an alloy with 92.5% silver and 7.5% usually copper. In contrast, Argentium silver has more pure silver (93.5% or 96%) and includes germanium. Argentium is more durable, has a higher melting point, and is easier to work with than sterling silver. Additionally, Argentium is significantly more resistant to tarnishing, being seven times more tarnish-resistant than sterling silver.

Gold Plated:

Gold plated involves electroplating a thin layer of gold over a base metal like brass or copper. There's no set standard for the karat weight or thickness of the gold layer in gold plated items. The color of the gold can vary depending on its karat weight; for example, 14k gold tends to have a lighter yellow hue, while 18k gold usually appears with a darker yellow color.

*All of our metal materials come from certified sellers in the USA.

Care and Maintenance for Your Rosary:
  • Handle your rosary gently to prevent damage to the beads or links.
  • Store it in a safe, dry place when not in use to protect it, such as in a TLB pouch or box.
  • Clean the rosary periodically with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust and dirt.
  • Avoid exposing the rosary to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and moisture.
  • It's still a good practice to give your rosary some rest and ensure it's stored safely after use.
