This light gray limestone is quarried from fossil beds in the mythical Carpathian Mountains.  Used throughout Europe for stone flooring, cladding, and pool copings, this natural stone tile has various hues of gray & cream.  Quartz veining and fossils are also present in this and are most visible in its polished or honed limestone finish.  This is also a prized architectural stone for cut-to-size projects because of its density, soft tones and resilience to the elements.
