Marble analysis, 4777
Marble origin: Doliana (Greece)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 0.47 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -2.15 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 2.87 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: blue-violet with light brown grain boundaries
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: heterogeneous
Stable isotope data fall in a zone where different source areas (i.e. Paros, Marmara, Göktepe, Carrara, Hymettus, Naxos, Aphrodisias) overlap and the data are inconclusive. The texture and the cathodomicrofacies differ with those of these marbles. The marble of our data bank which present a similar characteristic pattern is the Doliana marble.
