Product Description

HISTORY
SCOTTISH GREEN MARBLE
Green Marble is hand mined in the Scottish Highlands and the West coast islands of Iona, Tiree and Skye. It comprises 800 million year old metamorphosed limestone, coupled with green serpentine from prehistoric plant life.
THE CELTIC KNOT
The Celtic Knot design is found throughout the British Isles and the most prevalent surviving examples are on Christian artifacts from the 7th and 8th Century in the form of huge standing stone crosses, metalwork and beautifully illuminated bibles such as the Book of Kells, which is on display at Trinity College, Dublin.
It is uncertain when and where these designs originated but many artifacts have been found with this scroll and knotwork throughout Europe going back to pre-Christian times. In modern times we try to put a meaning to this artwork but as little is written down it is all speculation but undoubtedly it indicates a person's status, or to glorify the gospels.
TRIQUETRA
The Triquetra with three points became known as the Trinity knot and was used to indicate the Holy Trinity in Christianity. The symbol pre-dates Christainity and the Celtic Druids celebrated the number 3 as a mystical and perfect number. It is thought this design originally represented the continuity of life.
