Connemara marble is one of the rarest marbles in the world and is found exclusively in the West of Ireland. Sourced from family controlled quarries in Connemara, it is becoming increasingly rare. The world’s finest truly green marble, it varies in colour from silver grey, pale green, shades of sage and moss to a deep variegated dark green.
It is a metamorphic rock formed when limestone was heated under pressure, producing a hard granular rock. Originally deposited near the end of the Precambrian era and about 700 million years ago. It is extremely hard, polishes well and resists staining.
Marble can produce a nurturing instinct and can enhance “good common sense” in matters of the home, the heart, and provides for strength of character and is also a “stone to provide protection” both physical and emotional.
Marble can be used in the treatment of disorders of the none marrow, and for viral and bacterial infections, sore throat, lower back pain and has been used extensively in the fields of naturopathy and homeopathy.
