Solid Sterling Silver Triskele ear studs, tiny ear stud set with 4mm Connemara Marble Cabochon stone. Stg silver scroll backs - gift boxed Triskele Symbol The Triskele symbol, otherwise known as the Triskelion, is a trilateral symbol consisting of three interlocked spirals. Widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols in existence, it appears on the Newgrange kerbstones, which date from approximately 3200 BC.

Triskeles feature prominently in both ancient and modern Celtic art, as they evoke the Celtic interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky (and all their interconnections). The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial. On the West Coast of Ireland along the Atlantic Seaboard are twelve mountains that are steeped in myth and mystery. In the heart of those are the green marble quarries which produce the renowned, distinctive, green Connemara marble. Connemara marble is one of the rarest marbles in the world and is found exclusively in the West of Ireland. It is becoming increasingly rare. The world's finest truly green marble, it varies in colour from silver grey, pale green, shades of sage and moss to a deep variegated dark green.
