Over 750 million years old Connemara marble is from the Precambrian age. Connemara marble is a beautiful and unusual marble rich in forsterite olivine and serpentine which gives it its green colour. Found in the West of Ireland it is Ireland’s most famous stone. It’s green colour symbolises Ireland. Look closely and you will see shades of olive, peridot, jade, emerald and a host of other greens as well as subtle greys, white and yellow. Being a natural material no two pieces are ever exactly the same. Connemara marble reflects the beauty of the Irish landscape and is part of its natural heritage. Connemara Marble is said to bring serenity to those who keep in near.
Garnet is reputed to be the stone for success socially and in business. We love it because it compliments the Connemara in such a subtle way. It reminds us of the dark hill tops in winter.
Amethyst is associated will Achill island in Co. Mayo where it was once very plentiful. We use it to represent the heather covered mountains of Ireland. The Romans believed it protected against drunkenness. It is the stone of wisdom and intuition.
