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.
A marble from fine-crystalline calcite which gets its pattern from sporadically imbedded red ferric oxide hematite.
