Bianco Lila

The close-up view of each stone type shows a relatively true image of the crystalline structure and the colouring. This is suitable for grained slabs to a limited extend only. In regard to the colour matching, please take an original sample of the stone from your furniture store as a basis.

Petrography

This is white calcite marble. The pattern is due to inclusions of the red ferric oxide hematite, some occurring in the shape of thin lines and others as irregular stria and clouds. 

Petrogenesis

Marble is generated, when non-crystalline limestone, mostly deposited at the bottom of the sea, turns crystalline under high pressure and temperature during orogenesis.
