Development of new techniques to understand marble quality and durability
Date:5/9/2008

rcial marbles in Spain and Germany, as well as in those marbles historically used for certain constructive and ornamental functions. In the case of Spain, they have analysed the most commercialized varieties of marble in Andalusia, as well as those historically used in emblematic constructions of the Andalusian Architectural Heritage. "Marbles selection has been carried according to their micro-structural and textural features, especially their size and degree preferred crystallographic orientation, mineralogical composition and level of crystallographic and/or physical-mechanical anisotropy. Specifically, marbles from Macael, Almera; Huelva (Blanco Agua, Blanco Aroche and Almaden de la Plata marbles); Blanco Ibrico marble from Alhama de Granada and from Mijas de Mlaga".

Marble prints

Such analysis will also allow to understand the specific features of every stone (their "fingerprints") to determine their origin and, therefore, protect their emblematic prints against others from different geographic origins. "In a globalized sector like that of natural stone says Sebastin- this is a key factor, as the purchase of stone is very frequent in countries where manpower costs are very cheap, giving rise to a strong loss of competitiveness of higher quality indigenous marbles. One of the most effective ways to compete with the ornamental stone of such countries is the creation of prestigious brands linked to natural stone".
