Marble analysis, 4835
Marble origin: Marmara (Turkey) or Paros (Paros-Choriodaki) (Greece)?
Maximum grain size (MGS): 1.63 mm
δ18OV-PDB: -1.62 ‰
δ13CV-PDB: 2.85 ‰
Cathodoluminescence color: blue with light pink grain boundaries
Cathodoluminescence intensity: weak
Cathodoluminescence distribution: homogeneous
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 cathodomicrofacies pattern supports Marmara or Paros as the origin of this marble.
