Striato Elegant

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

This is grey-brown dolomite limestone sediment. Well recognisable are the not so regular horizontal stripes, having inspired to give it the trade name striato = ital. striped. Hereby, each individual layer represents a period of thousands of years.

Petrogenesis

Limestone of this kind was formed from lime-containing sea sediments. The still soft lime sludge hardened to a solid rock over time under the pressure of layers deposited above it.
