Portuguese marble: color and textural variation

Mármores Portugal - gama cromática e textural

Marble is a natural stone type extracted, processed and used in monuments, buildings and pavements in Portugal for millennia. Portuguese marble is used all over the world; in Portugal, at least since Roman times. Small samples (and photos) hardly capture the full variation range of color and texture of natural stones. Even so, the picture above tries to depict some of the Portuguese marble’s beauty (I must confess my favourite is Verde Viana’s marble). The image was (laboriously) created from individual smaller photos.

Hope you enjoy.
