The tranquil and reflective green hills of Ireland come to mind when you hold these beautiful Connemara Irish Marble Rosary Beads.
Connemara Marble Is Irelands Natural Gem Stone.
Each bead on this Rosary is made from Genuine Connemara Marble which is found only in the Connemara Mountains in the West of Ireland, and dates back 900 Million years and no two pieces are the same.
Few things reflect the beauty of creation more strongly than the deep and varied greens of Connemara Marble, found only on the west coast of Ireland. These Rosary Beads, handmade in Dublin from marble cut from a quarry in Co. Galway, are part of a long tradition in Irish Rosary beads. The first Irish Rosaries were made by monks of the great settlements like Cashel, Clonmacnoise and Glendalough. Using the horns of animals, they fashioned beads of natural beauty and simple strength. Their strength in particular put them much in demand in medieval Europe, where the rosary was a widely observed meditation, and personal link with the Creator. These beads continue that tradition, combining natural beauty with practical strength. Carry them with you, and tranquility will never be far away.
