Marble analysis, 8414
Marble origin: Paros (Paros-Chorodaki) (Greece)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 2.05 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -3.15 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 2.25 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: purple
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: homogeneous
Stable isotope data fall in a zone where different source areas (i.e. Paros, Marmara, Carrara, Hymettus, Aphrodisias, Afyon, Naxos, Göktepe) overlap and the data are inconclusive. The pattern of the cathodomicrofacies is similar to that of the Paros-Chorodaki marble. As we have only two isolated grains, we have some reservation about a Parian origin. However, the other possible origins, with the exception of Marmara, can be discarded.
