Offer 29: I believe that we can meet your superlative structural and esthetic needs quite well with our CHRYSTALINA marble. This is a stone devoid of vein that is produced in Greece (FOB would be  Greece); however, though produced in Greece it is not of the Thassos group, as you have made it explicitly clear that you are not interested in those stones given that they are not compatible with your intended uses.

We can certainly appreciate your qualitative needs given the scope of your intended uses for the marble. In the 1500’s Michelangelo would spend weeks at a time dissecting cadavers in a monastery to discover the vital structures of the human body beneath the skin’s surface. He methodically studied the joints, cartilage and muscles in order to learn about human anatomy for his sculpture of David. Carved out of two tons of marble, physical stamina is clearly demonstrated in the statue’s fixed points: the ankle, waist, wrists, hand. He eventually learned that in order to support the sculpture’s weight, he had to be very careful handling the marble in these critical areas; that by ignoring any of these parts, his sculpture might collapse. What is more, through trial and error Michelangelo discovered, as you very well know yourself, that the kind of marble used, aside from the obvious esthetics of the stone, also plays a major role in meeting the requisite stamina criteria.

Consequently, we are confident that with CHRYSTALINA you will be provided with the right (both esthetically pleasing and structurally viable) stone with which to create your sculptures and other applications of very exquisite workmanship.

If you feel that you would be interested in doing business with us, please do not hesitate to communicate your specific needs at your earliest convenience. We will be pleased to forward whatever facsimiles you require to make a further assessment.
