This Miraculous Medal is a tiny "document" on Mariology, the study of Mary, the Mother of God!
"Each symbol on the Medal means something." (see the Jpeg below for the complete information). The Miraculous Medal is not magical, but wearing it and meditating on its symbolism can bring about greater faith, hope and purity. (this is true for any holy medal and Christian token) The symbols on the medal include the RAYS coming from the rings on her fingers, the PRAYER around the frame of the medal, the GLOBE that Mary is standing on, the STARS on the back, along with the TWO HEARTS and the M with the CROSS. Please, check out the jpeg link below.
three styles are available here:
1) - silver oxide, regular size, 1 inch tall
2) - silver oxide, extra large, 1.75 inches tall (the "white" spot below Mary's knee is just the reflection of her bended knee)
3) - gold plated, regular size, 1 inch tall
These medals are great on necklaces, bracelets, rosaries, pins or whatever else you had in mind. They all come with an open jump ring so you can attach it to your necklace.
All medals and crucifixes are silver oxide (unless noted otherwise), which is a silver plated zinc alloy. They are quality Italian made, and the medals are approx. 1 inch tall and 5/8 inch wide. Crucifix sizes vary per listing. Your items will ship first class in a padded kraft envelope.
