This Sterling Silver Pendant design is of The Tree of Life. The design is enclosed in a band of green Connemara marble. The Celts called The Tree of Life Crann Bethagh, and regard trees as special even to the extent that highways today in Ireland are rerouted to accommodate ancient trees. The Druids name means Oak in Irish and they were called after the Oak tree, because trees were somehow connected to a greater force. The symbol of The Tree of Life reminds us of the bounty of Mother Earth and its ability to regenerate itself. This piece of jewelry is made in Ireland and Hallmarked at Dublin Castle, Ireland to prove its silver content and place of manufacture.
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. The Seller specially selects the best gem quality green colour from their quarry for your jewelry.
