Triple Swirl or Triskele


The triskele or triple swirl is thought to symbolise, well, just about everything really.

Some say it represents life, death, birth & re-birth, nature and it’s eternal cycles, there is more but I will stop now.

What it means to the Celts is unknown but its simple design leaves it open to lots of interpretation.

What’s your spin on it?

Product Description

Slate & Fossils

We use local Cork green slate for our stones, this rock was formed 450-600 million years ago (or thereabouts!) when layers of compressed clay, ash & plant material were eventually transformed into rock.

When you look first you may see smudges or spots on the surface of your stone. If you look closer you will see that these are actually fossilised remains of plants. Old plants that grew here hundreds of millions of years ago.

Have a look and see what you can see!



The immense heat of our laser reacts with minerals in the stone, to form natural crystals on the surface of the stone that sparkle darkly. We bring new life to ancient stone.



Our lovely Irish green slate is not called green because it’s Irish but because of it’s green hue.

But, on top of that our slate has it’s own extra special little addition that you may see in your stone, malachite. Malachite is a beautiful green mineral that is found sporadically thought the seam of slate.

So, your Irish green slate, with it’s green hue may have additional specks of green throughout the stone. We just wanted you to be sure (to be sure) of where the stone came from.



Your stone by it’s nature is tough and durable. However the crystals on the surface can be scraped off by other stones/stone surfaces.

Also, slate can crack when dropped or thrown (it has been known to happen!), so yes you have a stone but show it a little TLC.

You can rinse it in warm soapy water and let it dry naturally in the sun if you want to dust it from time to time.
