Pinolith

Pinolith (or Pinolite), very rare material, was actually first discovered in 1873 and comes from only one location in the world- a small manganese quarry in Austria’s Turen Mountains. It is a metamorphic rock containing magnesite as crystals in a dolomite and graphite matrix. It is named Pinolith because the magnesite inclusions resemble pine cones in shape. One nice feature of Pinolith is a softly chatoyant quality that is subtle and beautiful.

Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.

We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my Macbook Pro, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
