Dark Emperador Marble

Dark Emperador Marble is also known as Imperial Brown, Brown Emperor or Dark Emperor. Emperador Dark is, along with Crema Marfil, the most popular marble in the world.

Emperador Dark is a dark brown marble with fine grain and some irregular and intersected lighter vein. The Imperador Dark marble presents some random signs of small calcite. It's pretty heavy. Its main variations usually depend on the different color tones that can be present in the Imperador Dark marble (darker or lighter), as well as on the amount of calcite in it.

The largest volume of Emperador Dark marble is mined in the area around the Spanish city of Yekla.

Yekla's economy has traditionally been based on grain production as well as excellent wine, olive oil, fruit and other agricultural products. It is important to mention the natural stone mining and processing industry in the nearby quarries of the world famous Emperador Dark marble, a reference stone in the international market.

The Imperador Dark marble is extracted by several companies throughout the city of Yekla. There are several quarries that mine Emperador Dark, they are quite large in size, with wide fronts of exploration and the extraction of large blocks.

Just like Crema Marfil, Emperador Dark marble is a famous and internationally recognized Spanish natural stone.

There are quite interesting variants of Emperador Dark marble in Turkey. Turkey has a rich supply of Imperador Dark marble, with a large number of quarries scattered throughout the country.

Emperador Dark Turkish marble takes its name from the Spanish type. Although the Emperador Dark of Turkey does not exhibit the same dark brown color tone as its Spanish counterpart, the Turkish Emperador Dark presents a similar structure with spider webs. Imperador Dark Turkish marble shows a pale brown color, not too dark. Some newer variations of this marble may be quite dark brown but are slowly moving in the international market.
