Connemara Marble Rosary Beads- St Patricks Medal
A gift of a rosary is often an intergenerational gift being passed from a parent or grandparent to their child. Handcrafted in Ireland, these unique marble rosary beads showcase Connemara Marble’s various shades of green. Carry them with you, and tranquility will never be far away. “Beads pass through the hands, that link to the past and hope for the future”.
Few things reflect the beauty of creation more strongly than the deep and varied greens of Connemara Marble, found only in a small corner of Ireland’s Atlantic seaboard. These Rosary Beads, handmade in Dublin with marble cut from our quarry in Co. Galway, are part of our long tradition with Irish Rosary beads. We have been hand making rosary beads since 1945.
The first Irish Rosary beads 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.
Please note, as marble is a natural stone some tones and shades may vary.
