Connemara marble is one of the rarest marbles in the world and is found exclusively in the West of Ireland. Mined from family controlled quarries near Galway Bay. it is becoming increasingly rare. The world’s only truly green marble it varies in colour from creamy pale green to shades of sage and moss, with no two pieces being similar. Originally deposited near the end of the Precambrian era, about 600 million years ago. It is extremely hard, polishes well and resists staining.

Often called Ireland’s national gemstone and used for centuries in jewellery making, as a means of exchange, for fixtures in stately buildings it is the traditional gift between families who vow friendship through generations.
