Muiredeach High Cross: Sterling Silver with Connemara Marble
This five-decade full rosary is created using sterling silver with 8mm beads in in Irish Connemara marble*, a spectrum of green, sepia and dark grey. The rosary has a reproduction cross in sterling silver by Fadó Jewelry of one of Ireland's most detailed High Crosses, the Muiredeach High Cross which stands at Monasterboice in County Louth. An especially celebrated double-sided Celtic High Cross, it dates back to around the 10th century. A true heirloom treasure!
Your Connemara marble rosary is hand-chained with love and care in Ireland. The small rose centre and cross are linked to the Aves and the Pater beads by a hand-wrapped and very secure sterling silver connector.
The rosary comes with a quality zipped black leather purse for extra protection and ease of use and is presented in a gold-embossed bronze-colour gift box.
*Connemara Marble is the most renowned and most beautiful of Ireland's ancient indigenous stones, formed some 900 million years ago in the Precambrian Age. Shot through with swirls of green, sepia and dark grey, this marble is sourced from the Joyce family quarry in the Twelve Bens of Connemara, an unspoilt region of great natural beauty and curvaceous peaks in the West of Ireland that imbues the stone with a gentle nurturing sense of peace.
