Platinum is the same quality Type III, Dolomitic Limestone with its distinct color and is very similar to Dovewhite in composition and performance characteristics. The particular vein where this color comes from yields a stone with dramatic silvery movement. Known as â€œmottling,â€ this stone had a high concentration of sea shells and shell fragments within it while it was being formed. The intense compaction that created this densely grained stone turned these living organisms into part of the stoneâ€™s color. This sandblasted finish creates a more subtle, yet visually appealing look.
