Connemara Marble is referred to as Ireland's Gemstone, as it is a unique and rare form of marble found only in the West of Ireland and is estimated to be over 600 million years old. This beautiful marble offers a range of colour tones, from the lighter, paler shades of green, all the way to rich dark emerald tones. How fitting for Ireland that one of its natural treasures is the only green marble known to exist!
This piece also had a beautiful marcasite shamrock and according to tradition, shamrocks never flower, nor will they grow anywhere outside of Ireland. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock in order to demonstrate the holy Trinity.
