In the past few years, the Vatican only authenticates the relics of saints who lived and died after the 8th century. The relics of saints from the early centuries of the church are no longer available from Rome. As a result, relics of the early saints and martyrs are difficult to obtain. This relic is a treasure to be honored, and a rare one to find. For private veneration, document is not necessary.
Note that the relic is the small dark area in the round or oval theca. The name of the saint is written above or below this area. Most relic particles are pinhead in size and covered with a resin or glue of some sort. Because the particle is so small, and that particle is covered with glue or resin, it is nearly impossible to see with the naked eye what the relic is without looking under a magnifying glass. Furthermore, you are looking at digital pictures that are not the best quality. Most particles look dark, some are light, but most everyone knows this information who are familiar with relics. Seals on the back of thecas are wax, and this wax impression seal is sometimes very clear, at times faint, and other times squeezed/compressed, broken and unrecognizable. Of utmost importance is that the wax seal is either all there or partially there with intact threads holding the seal and backing plate intact. Only the reliquary is for sale, the relic itself is a gift included. However,some are not informed or misinformed about relics, and hopefully this information will help those who are unfamiliar with the actual relic itself.
