ESTREMOZ ROSA MARBLE

Cut and polished sample
​​​​​​​(second hand item)


Estremoz, Alentejo Region, Portugal
 
The marbles from the Estremoz and Évora districts are some of Portugal’s best known decorative stones. They vary widely in colour but the cream to pink marbles are the most popular. This variety from Estremoz is also called rosa aurora.

It was originally a limestone of Cambrian age that was metamorphosed to marble during the Devonian period and tinted with iron oxide.


This cut and polished sample is an attractive pink colour with dark veining. It is from an old building stone collection.
