The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.
On this medallion, the 14 stations are nano engraved around the head of Christ. There is a 14 point star that floats made from millions of diffractive elements symbolizing the birth of Christ representing the cradle to grave of the Messiah.
The pendant is protected by an optically clear crystal, framed on a 20mm sterling silver coin holder, and adorned with a matching sterling silver curb chain. The 18 inch curb chain is elegantly sized at 1.4mm diameter and has large lobster claw clasp for ease of putting on and removal.
