Over 800 million years ago, limestone was formed under the oceans of Scotland.
As plant life of the time died and settled on the sea bed the life-sustaining chlorophyll from these plants, coupled with the metamorphosis of the limestone, resulted in what we now know as Scottish marble.
Scottish marble has been prized by fishermen for centuries.
On the Isle of Iona they would not leave port without their lucky green gems.
