Description of the stone: Niwala Yellow is a yellow/ochre sandstone full of texture. Disjointed sea fossils provide the unique aspect to this coarse ochre sedimentary rock.
Peculiarities of the stone: It is a calcareous-bioclastic sedimentary rock, of marine origin. Depending on the grain size, it is composed from biocalcirudite to biocalcisandstone. It was formed in the accumulation of fossil fragments of bryozoa, lamellibranchs, red algae and foraminifera, with variable quartz grain proportion, petrographically defined as biosparite. Depending on the cut, the tractive structure can be seen (cross cut) or fades (vein cut).
