Connemara is a large peninsula in the west of County Galway. It is one of the last remaining Irish/Gaelic speaking parts of Ireland. The famous green and white Connemara marble, famed for its beauty, its color and its resistence, was formed more than 700 million years ago. The marble is mined from deep under the 12 Bens Mountains. ‘Connemara Marble’ is a serpentine-rich rock, popular since ancient times as a decorative facing stone. With its ‘forty shades of green’ and its wild patterns, it represents perfectly the landscapes of the Emerald Isle. Connemara Marble inspired artists, architects and artisans throughout the world. Jewellery and other small objects are also made with this unique stone.
No two piecies of Connemara marble are identical so you are buying a totally unique piece!
