Connemara Marble

Round Compact Mirror Connemara Marble

Genuine Connemara Marble Compact Mirror. Handcrafted in Ireland it is easily stashed away in a purse, pocket or to display on your dressing table. It is the perfect staple for anyone’s purse or car.

We think this slim, circular compact is so elegant. Apart from the practical elements, we feel it turns a makeup touch-up into a sophisticated gesture.

Interestingly, mirrored compacts first came into fashion in the Roaring 20s, when applying lipstick or powder in public became an act of utter sophistication.

The mirror on one side is magnified while the other is a clear view.

Each piece of Connemara Marble is entirely unique, known as the Gemstone of Ireland it incredibly dates back 900 million years.

This is the perfect gift for anyone with an appreciation of our Irish Gemstone.

Connemara Marble is a rare form of marble found 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. It’s 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!
