Connemara Marble specimens from Clifden, County Galway, Ireland

Connemara Marble is an uncommon green marble from the Connemara region of Ireland.

It has a green colouration which leads it to be strongly associated with the Irish identity, particularly in terms of local jewellery making. It is typically used for jewellery, internal architecture, and souvenirs, as it isn't suitable for use as a external construction material. A number of historical buildings in Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States use the material.

It has been mined for centuries and is generally recognised as 'the' standout Irish gem material. Connemara Marble gains its colour from varying proportions of minerals like serpentine, diopside, and forsterite.

The pieces we have currently are typically quite flat, typically 1-2CM thick but sometimes as thin as 0.5CM.
