"CEMMAES, a township in the parish of Llanbadrig, hundred of Tal-y-Bolion, in the county of Anglesey, North Wales, 10 miles N.E. of Holyhead. The London and North-Western railway passes within 3 miles of the village, and has a station at Ty-Croes. It is situated on a little creek, opening into a most beautiful bay, about 1 mile across, on the northern side of the isle. It affords a shipping place for the exportation of the serpentine, or Mona marble, called by statuaries "verd antique," quarried in the adjacent parish of Llanvechell. Its entrance into the main sea is guarded on each side by a craggy promontory, the one of gray the other of snow-white marble, smooth as the surface of a mirror, and when illuminated by the sun, its sparkling transparency baffles description. In the interior recesses of the bay a bank of black shale finely contrasts with a lofty, irregular, projecting arch of white marble."
