Celtic knot-work embodies a richness and pureness of ancient Celtic times. It dates back as far as the 5th century and was used extensively by the ancient monks to illuminate the world famous Book of Kells manuscripts. The interlaced unbroken lines symbolize one’s spiritual growth, eternal life and never ending love – having no beginning and no end. Each twist and turn has its individual magical and mystic qualities. This particular knot is also known as the Trinity Knot as the monks used it to describe the Holy Trinity.
Connemara Marble is referred to "Ireland's Gem Stone" as it is a very unique and rare form of Marble and can only be found in the West of Ireland. It is estimated to be over 600 million years old. It is the presence of various natural elements in the limestone that gives Connemara marble its rich and beautiful colours. 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!
