This paternoster is called a New World rosary because it appears to be made of turquoise which was a popular stone in the Americas during the exploration of the New World during the 16th Century.
It is made of 14mm round beads and a "turquoise" cross. These were sold to me as turquoise but I believe they may be dyed magnesite. The cross measures 1 3/4" x 1" and hangs from one end and a ring with a cord is attached to the other end for hanging. All are linked together with bronze jewelry wire. It measures approx. 11" not including the cord.
Tenners or Gebetskette Zehners (prayer chain with 10 beads) became popular in the 16th century. As the name implies, they were chaplets consisting of 10 beads. Sometimes another bead was added which was usually larger than the 10 beads and sometimes had bead caps and/or spacers separating it from the other beads. In addition to these beads there was a tassel, saint's metal, credo cross, crucifix or some kind of pendant. Often a number of these items were used in combination at the end of the prayer beads.
