Fior di Bosco
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.
The limestone consists of numerous lime-shell microorganisms (for instance: foraminifera), fractured shells and oolitic layers. Fine micro cracks healed with calcite are typical.
Limestone, like this one, is generated at the seabed in a relatively low water depth. The largest proportion of the lime substance is biogenetic, meaning of organic origin. Lime sludge, deposited in between, acts as an inorganic binding agent.
