Scope note
A hard and highly crystalline marble from Missouri that is used extensively for interior and exterior applications; it is grayish in color, has a close, even texture and takes a high polish. Crinoide remains create pencil-like markings which in turn create attractive patterns that are revealed when the marble is sawn crossways.
