Abstract

The Kolmården serpentine marble is a well known Svecofennian marble from Sweden, and here it is proposed as a possible ‘Global Heritage Stone Resource’. This marble matches the newly proposed designation ideally, since for many years it has been used in the construction of major historical buildings, as well as famous buildings of national and international importance. The Kolmården marble continues to be quarried today.
