Abstract

The travertine and the onyx from Gulabova cave, Besiste village, in western Macedonia have been examined in order to determine the possibility to use them as architectural stone. The analyses and the laboratory research were performed on samples of travertine and onyx. The samples were taken from the surface parts. The results from their physical mechanical examinations have shown that the rock mass itself satisfies the requirements to be used as an architectural stone according to the state standards of Macedonia. The quality of the stone is higher in the deeper parts of the field where the external influences have a very small effect. This stone has highly decorative features but it also has fine grained structure which is a positive effect for the technical characteristics and the subjection for processing and production.
