This stunningly beautiful British stone is the only true marble on mainland Britain and is consequently treasured across the globe. Ledmore usually consists of large white veins resulting from calcium compounds, lime green veining originating from copper compounds, and greys and blacks from organic compounds; in short a facsimile of British geological history.
With the initial deposits laid down 600 million years ago, the veining is relatively young at 430 million years.
Typical slab sizes are 2m x 1m; however they can vary.
