This little cross with Iona marble is a perfect gift from the island. A simple ringed cross known locally as St. Columba's Pillow Cross, from a legend that St. Columba used a stone as a pillow and that the image of a ringed cross appeared on it one night as he lay sleeping. This design is based on a carved oval stone which was found in a field north of the Abbey by a crofter in the 19th century and was proclaimed to be, "St Columba's Pillow".
The cross is accompanied by a hand cut and polished piece of Iona Marble 18mm x 13mm, collected from St. Columba's Bay. Please note the marble may vary from the one shown.
Material: Cross, 18 inch snake chain & findings, 925 sterling silver
