Fantasy Brown

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 dolomite marble with cloudy magnesium mica (phlogopite) imbedded. The portions enriched with diopside are greenish-grey and significantly harder.

Petrogenesis

Marble of this kind was generated from dolomite rock or dolomite-containing limestone containing a certain amount of clay and quartz. The minerals of these maritime sediments reacted with each other under high pressure and temperature during metamorphosis and formed at the same time a crystalline structure.
