One of our most popular Irish rosaries is now available in a round bead version! This green Irish rosary features a St. Patrick centerpiece and a Celtic Cross crucifix. Each round green marble rosary bead is hand-carved by local artisans from the famous green marble only found near Connemara in western Ireland. This prized marble is a distinct muted, earthy green color which comes in a variety of shades ranging from light to dark. Connemara marble is believed to be millions of years old and has been prized for centuries for its special beauty. Connamara marble is crafted into popular pieces, such as this Connemara Marble Oval Bead Rosary, and exported all over the world. Makes a lovely rosary gift for the Irish at heart!
