ROSEWOOD MARBLE

Cut and polished

300 million years old


Nettler Dale, near Ashford, Derbyshire


Rosewood marble is one of the classic Derbyshire marbles. Resembling wood grain, it is not a true marble in the geological sense, but a rich brown, banded algal limestone that takes a beautiful polish. It was used extensively in Derbyshire marble inlay workshops during the 19th and early 20th centuries.  

This piece is a very fine example. It is cut and polished on two faces with the reverse showing the marble as it appears naturally as a waterworn surface.
