Reliquary cross with 12 holes for relics, a rectangular one in the intersection of the arms and the other are circular: 7 in the vertical arm and 4 in the horizontal one. In those holes there are small bones, each one with a round label with the names of the saints they supposedly belong to. The rectangular hole in the cross-section is empty. The obverse of the cross is spattered with dotted clips and it also has small circles as decoration, grouped in three, four or five circles that have lost their crystal cover.
