The green hills of Ireland are called to mind when you hold this beautiful Genuine Connemara Marble Rosary. Handcrafted in Ireland, the unique cubed marble beads showcase Connemara Marble's various shades of green. Connemara means "of the sea" and comes from the Connemara Mountains in the most western parts of Ireland in County Galway. A Celtic crucifix completes the rosary. The rosary is constructed with an extra strong double link chain and measures 25" long.

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 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.

    Genuine Connemara Marble Irish Rosary

    I purchased this rosary for our parish pastor, not knowing what to expect, but hoping that this rosary would be as beautiful as it was shown to be. It was MORE BEAUTIFUL than I thought and our pastor loved it! The rosary was just as it was shown on the website and very sturdy/strong! The stones were unique, strong and as beautiful as it was advertised to be! The only words that I can think of to describe this rosary is brilliant, stunning, beautiful, spectacular, strong and precious (and as precious as the stones that made this rosary the way it is.) I have had other rosaries that have been beautiful, but this one takes the prize. The length is fantastic, it's easy to hold and it feels amazing while praying it! I would recommend this rosary to anyone, whether or not they are Irish. It's well worth the money! Although I would love to be able to win this precious rosary, I am writing this so that others will understand what a great gift this can be or if you bought it for yourself or a loved one! It is well worth the money! If you have an Irish family member or friend, this makes it even more precious and special!

    Nice piece, with some qualifications

    This is, indeed, a pretty rosary. The links aren't all uniform and there is some offset to the rosary, though. I returned for this reason.

    My Rosary

    I have now got the rosary I will use the rest of my life. I did not like the way it came so I purchased a sterling Silver Crusifix and Trinity Knot and had them put into this rosary. Now it is the one I will use forever.

    Well Constructed

    Rosary seems intended to be used by a male. It is large, and fortunately I have a jewelry type 4" X 5" felt sack with a drawstring to store it.

    I have offered the rosaries as a gift to several people, including an Episcopalian. All were delighted and pleased to receive the gift.

    Awsome!

    I am an American of Irish decent. These are a great men's rosary. I replaced the cheap cross with a new cross. This rosary makes you want to pray. It is very comforting!
