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.

    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.

    Connemara Marble Rosary Beads

    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!

    I have been buying this rosary for yrs from grandsons and great grandsons for their communion . I put a metal disk with the date of celebration on so they can remember. they are 22, 21,19, 16, 13 and now 7. Perfect for boys and they are Irish.

    Just perfect

    I am buying this rosary for my great grandson for his communion.I started this years ago for a grandson who is now 24. Also for my grandsons who are 21, 19,16, 13. They have all loved it. I get a metal engraved with their name and date and give it with the rosary. Best idea I ever had--this is perfect for boys.

    No longer good marble

    Bought one of these years ago which is still in great shape. Bought another one - lighter color marble - 2 beads have fallen off.
