Caption: Boudinage feature in marble stone. Boudinage is a geological term for small scale, structural deformations resulting from shear and tensile stresses exerted upon a consistent layer that is interbedded in a more readily deformable rock. The boudinage in this example is part of a pegmatite vein in a marble deposit on Naxos, Greece. The actual width of this polished slab is 300mm.
