General Description of the Quarry
The quarry is little fractured in some areas, but very fractured in other ones. However, important tectonic features do not exist. Rare dolomitic limestone inclusions of the "Owl's eye" - type and schistose intercalations occur, as well as small colourless calcitic veins with quartz inclusions. The blocks extracted are of variable size, from small to large, and their cutting is usually performed according to the grain plane. There are some reserves of this marble.
