Pendant Fairy Tree silver silhouette with Connemara Marble background
The Fairy Tree pendant is reversible, with a silhouette silver fairy tree on the front and a flat polished piece of Connemara marble on the reverse. The Fairy Tree is revered in Ireland and many recent new motorways have had to be redirected around them to avoid interfering with them. They are regarded as meeting places for the ‘wee folk’. Treasure them for their good luck...which this pendant will bring the wearer. Irish Connemara Green Marble is a decorative marble, valued for its banded and rippled patterns and multifarious shades of green colour. The many hues of green are particularly noteworthy, ranging from the night green of the mineral diopside, to dark green of actinolite, to lighter green of talc, to sea green of chlorite, and to pistachio green of epidote. The marble in your piece of jewelry will be different from the marble in the photograph. This is its charm and makes the piece of Ireland in your jewelry unique to you.
