HISTORY

Connemara is a famous region in the west of Ireland. It means “Inlets for the Sea” in the Irish language and has tremendous rugged beauty. Connemara holds a particular fondness for those seeking the old-fashioned and quintessential Ireland. 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 such as key rings, coasters and crosses are also made with this unique stone. Connemara Marble is a rare form of marble found in the region, which is typically greenish in colour. It is said to be one of the rarest forms of marble in the world due to its limited supply and dates back over 600 million years. The marble itself is formed when limestone is heated under pressure. While the colour is predominately green there are often shades of grey and brown seen throughout. It dates back to the Precambrian era. (Source: Rubylane)
