Connemara Marble is referred to as "Ireland's Gem Stone". It is a very unique and rare form of Marble found in valley of the 12 Bens in Connemara, the heart of the West of Ireland. This beautiful marble, estimated to be over 900 million years old, gets its range of green color tones from the various natural elements only found in the limestone in this remote and rugged region on Irelands Atlantic Coast.
When the raw stone is extracted from the quarry, it shows only the palest shades of green. From the quarry, it is brought to marble factories where it is cut and polished by our master craftsmen who bring out the many shades of green and the distinctive marble pattern. The deeper the marble is quarried from, the darker the green will be. How fitting for Ireland that one of its natural treasures is the only natural green marble known to exist!
Each piece of our jewelry created using this treasured natural stone is totally unique as no two pieces of the famed marble are the same.
