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 rock consists mostly of calcium carbonate. The vivid texture is determined by
in parts strictly parallel lines, but mainly by irregular enclosures of small amounts of
iron oxides (hematites).
That kind of limestones evolved out of lime sludge on the seabed. Even before the solidification, the different layers of sediments began to move because of tectonic processes. What gave result to the vivid structure.
