Connemara Marble Connemara marble is found exclusively along Ireland’s rugged wild Atlantic coast. The word Connemara comes from the Gaelic meaning “Inlets for the Sea”. It is typically greenish in colour. Geologically, the deposits date back some 600 million years. Originally marine sediments, the marble forms when limestone is heated under pressure. While the colour is predominately green there are often shades of grey, white and brown seen throughout. Long prized for its beauty, 4000-year-old axes made from Connemara Marble in the Neolithic can be seen in The National Museum of Ireland.
