Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Siena marble is known for its fresh yellow veining. It is increasingly rare and exists in various degrees of colour richness depending upon the date of mining. Earlier mined Siena marble is a much darker yellow while more recent excavations are paler in colour. This pair of tazze has a richness of colour and veining which dates it to the nineteenth century and no later.
One of the most extraordinary uses of this marble can be seen in the inlaid floor of Siena Cathedral with its intricate Biblical scenes.
