Marble analysis, 50.108
Marble origin: Paros (Paros-Choriodaki) (Greece) or Marmara (Turkey)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 1.40 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -1.32 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 3.07 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: blue and dark blue
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: heterogeneous
Stable isotope data fall in a zone where different source areas (i.e. Paros, Thasos, Marmara, Carrara, Hymettus) overlap and the data are inconclusive. However, the blue color of luminescence support Paros or Marmara as the origin of this marble.
