Pori Stone

Pori Stone
Copyright (2004) Robin Tzannes

Margiakos limestone contains clay minerals and organic material, making it lightweight but hard. Known as ‘pori’, it is a good building material, and is most often used to frame doorways and windows in traditional stone houses on Kythera. 9 cm. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
