"Young ladies take great care in creating elaborate hairdos."

Dolomite marble, with its glistening whiteness, is the perfect material to stand out against a dark background, especially if you use a spotlight.

This variety has chunky crystals within the stone, and these facets catch the light so it glitters like gemstones. It is extremely hard and difficult to sculpt.

Due to its chemical make-up, marble can deteriorate outdoors (taking on a yellow colour) so we recommend this piece for indoor display only.
