Here you can see cipollino marbles. Cipollino marbles are named after the italian for onion, cipollino. These marbles as the name suggests are light coloured with marbling of darker grey or green. The marbles have been valued as decorative building materials. Cipollino marble is also called marmor carystium by the Romans (meaning "marble from Karystos"). It was quarried in several locations on the south-west coast of the island of Euboea, between the modern-day cities of Styra and Karystos. Some of these ancient quarries survive with a mine-face of over 100 metres.
