At Two Skies, we think that "to own a piece of Scottish marble is to own a piece of Scotland itself."
Highland Marble Sterling Silver Stud Earrings (6mm)
Green marble is mined by hand by Two Skies in the Scottish Highlands and the West coast islands. Over 800 million years ago, limestone was formed under the oceans of Scotland. As plant life of the time died and settled on the sea bed the life-sustaining chlorophyll from these plants, coupled with the metamorphosis of the limestone, resulted in what we now know as Scottish marble. Scottish marble has been prized by fishermen for centuries. On the Isle of Iona they would not leave port without their lucky green gems. It has been used by healers to help the body return to a time unhindered by the stresses and pollution of modern times.
