The green hills of Ireland are called to mind when you hold these Genuine Connemara Marble Rosary beads. Handcrafted in Ireland, the unique cubed marble beads showcase Connemara Marble’s various shades of green. Connemara means “of the sea” and comes from the Connemara Mountains in the most western parts of Ireland in County Galway. A Celtic crucifix completes the rosary. The rosary beads are constructed with an extra strong double link chain measuring 25″ long.
Few things reflect the beauty of creation more strongly than the deep and varied greens of Connemara Marble, found only in a small corner of Ireland’s Atlantic seaboard. The first Irish Rosaries were made by monks of the great settlements like Cashel, Clonmacnoise and Glendalough. Using the horns of animals, they fashioned beads of natural beauty and simple strength. Their strength in particular put them much in demand in medieval Europe, where the rosary was a widely observed meditation, and a personal link with the Creator.
These beads continue that tradition, combining natural beauty with practical strength. Carry them with you and tranquility will never be far away.
