Characteristics of Picasso Marble
Picasso marble was formed during
prehistoric times when lava mixed with limestone. The colors and blustery
patterning are from magma
being forced through fractures in the limestone, coloring the stone with gray or
tan streaks and black lines. It is an astonishing combination of
intertwining blacks, browns, and tans that looks much like the famous Artist
Picasso's paintings. Some photos of very finely carved

Identifiable by its striking and dramatic combination of browns, blacks, grays and white colors, each piece is different. When cut into cabochon the stones often have a picturesque appearance and look like forest trees or hill sides in winter.
