#Sandstone was formed a hundred and twenty million years ago, during the Lower Cretaceous period, when the Earth was criss-crossed by large rivers that dragged with them the sandy particles produced by the erosion of the oldest rock formations that had appeared in the massifs.
These sediments accumulated over the years in riverbeds in deposits of varying thickness and, subsequently compacted and then consolidated, forming what we now call sandstone.
#DoradaUrbion is a medium grained sandstone, predominantly #BUFF in colour, where quartz is predominant. There are also small amounts of micas that show as tiny shiny spots on the surface, as well as oxide-hydroxides that create small veins. It has unequalled technical properties & aesthetic qualities, exceptional durability and it is low maintenance.
Quarried in Vilviestre del Pinar near Burgos (Spain) by #AreniscasStone. The quarry is worked all year round. Blocks are on average 2600x1500x1400 mm. The blocks are then brought to our factory, only a few yard from the quarry, for further processing into slabs/ashlars and cut to size.
