Scottish Skye Marble
The Skye Marble comes from the Scottish Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides and is hand collected in a quarry in the shadows of the Cuillin mountains.
Only 1 kg in 1000 kg is of high enough quality to create jewellery with.
The marble was created about 500 million years ago and displays an array of different colours, including rare blue, yellow and pink.
Most of the material is composed of green and black serpentine which is mixed with white or grey limestone which was formed millions of years ago from ancient corals and shells.
It is said that the Skye marble has a calming effect which fits with the reputation of the Isle of Skye as a place to calm down and connect to yourself.
Scottish Iona Marble
Each piece of Iona Marble is collected by hand near the Isle of Iona in Scotland while free-diving in the cold water of the sea!
Iona Marble is also known as the sacred stone of Columba and the pebbles of Iona Marble that can be found on the beach are also sometimes called Columba' Tears.
Iona Marble has been crafted into jewellery on the island for centuries and it is also said to be a lucky stone that protects against fire and shipwrecking.
It is said that the fisherman on the island never leave port without their lucky piece of Iona Marble.
