Marble origin: Paros (Paros-Marathi) (Greece) or Marmara (Turkey)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 0.63 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -3.02 ‰ -3.03 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 3.99 ‰ 3.94 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: blue
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: homogeneous
Stable isotope data fall in the fields of the Paros-Marathi, Marmara and Thasos marbles. The blue color of luminescence suggest Paros or Marmara as possible origin. The small size of the sample does not allow to be more precise.
