Grafit 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

The brown-grey limy basic mass is interrupted by partially transparent calcite veins. 

Petrogenesis

Limestone is sediment rock. It was generated when lime precipitated from water and sank. Nearly always organisms have participated in lime forming. The already solidified limestone sediment was broken up by tectonic motions of the earth’s crust. Lime-containing water, circulating in clefts, ensured that these clefts were filled with crystalline white calcite. This happened so perfectly that the risk of breakage when working with the stone is not increased.
