Known as “the Gemstone of Ireland” Connemara Marble is recognised as the iconic stone of Ireland and indeed a rare gemstone. Its use in jewellery can be regarded as one of Ireland’s indigenous industries and the handstone quarrying of Connemara marble is a centuries-old endeavour.

It is a calcite marble which contains large amounts of serpentine. The marble forms when limestone is heated under pressure. While the colour is predominantely green there are often shades of grey and brown seen thoughout.

Let our unique marble bring light to the center of your table, a true piece of home. Found only in the West of Ireland each piece of marble is as unique as a fingerprint, mother nature at her finest.

Description

Connemara Marble is a rare form of marble found only in Connemara Co. Galway in the West of Ireland.

• It is a calcite marble which contains large amounts of serpentine. The marble forms when limestone is heated under pressure. While the colour is predominantely green there are often shades of grey and brown seen thoughout.
• Formed from sediment deposited in a shallow primal sea over 900 million years ago. The beautiful stryations of rich to pale green within the marble are formed by tiny crystals of green serpentine, diopside, chlorite and rich white calcite with dolomite.
• Connemara Marble has been used for centuries as a medium of exchange. Its beautiful swirling patterns perfectly represent the Irish landscapes where it is found.

An inspiration for jewelry makers and architects across the world as the patterns are different in each stone which means each piece is entirely unique!

Please note as marble is a natural stone, tones and shades will vary.
