Description

Connemara Marble Celtic Cross. This unique pendant is designed and crafted in Sterling Silver by Solvar in Dublin, Ireland.This necklace combines the traditonal Celtic cross with both Connemara Marble and Marcasite.

Connemara Marble is one of the oldest marbles in the world about 600 million years old. It is mined in the Connemara region of the west of Ireland. Many years ago it was used for fixtures in state buildings and churches but now only small quantities are mined for jewellery. Each piece is individual with variations in the green colour, markings and veining.

Marcasite is a term applied to small polished and faceted stones that are traditionally inlaid in sterling sliver creating beautiful jewelry with a classic and sophisticated appeal.

The Celtic Cross pays tribute to those ancient Celts whose legacy remains. And for all to see, it is a powerful symbol of faith.  Now the story continues with those who wear a Celtic Cross. In doing so, we remember the precious heritage of Ireland, this land that has always been the home of saints and scholars.
