Summary "From the intricate swirls of sarrancolin marble to the intense depth of Absolute Black, Stone Sampler is a concise, portable reference for architects, interior designers, and builders, offering swatches of 576 varieties of natural stone, including marble, travertine, onyx, granite, quartzite, and limestone, available for use in construction and decoration. It summarizes their basic technical properties - quarrying locations, availability, compressive and tensile strength, resistance to wear and weather, and other specifications - for design and architecture professionals.
