Round glass-fronted yellow-metal reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of a bone) relics of the Blessed Aurelio Maria. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as Ex Ossibus B. Aurelii Mariae (from the bone of the Blessed Aurelio Maria.).  On the back, under the protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (The De La Salle Brothers).
