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 almost exclusively of calcite.
The originally light gray limestone evolved out of limescales on the seabed. The fine lined banding and the diverse embedded fossils result in a vivid texture.
