The hollow cross has arms that end in trefoils. The front side bears a crude incised depiction of the Crucifixion and the top arms has a circular window through which fragments of bone are displayed. The back of the cross bears an inscription identifying the relics as those of Prince Peter and Princess Fevronia of Murom.
