This listing is for one (1) pendant. We have several of these pendants, all so similar that we felt the photos represented all fairly - therefore you may not receive the actual pendant in the photographs, but one very similar, of no less quality or size than the one pictured. The Highland Marble in each pendant is of a similar shade of green, although it will display its own unique subtle characteristics. Please see photographs for examples.
At Two Skies, we think that "To own a piece of Scottish Highland Marble is to own a piece of Scotland itself. By purchasing this beautiful piece you are connected not just to Scotland but to its age old traditions and folklore."
Pictish Triskele Sterling Silver Pendant
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.
