Also called "Giallo", this marble is a crystalline limestone, smooth, very fine-grained, looks similar to a sublithographic, with some organisms, and also looks similar to a Breche marble. It can range from the most beautiful plain yellow to a lightly cloudy white yellow. The quarries were in Colle Val d'Elsa, in the surrounding area of Sienna in Italy. Its antique use has been proven by the discovery of this marble in the ruins of the Cathage archaeological site.
This marble was particularly used by Louis XIV. He used it for furniture, decoration, clocks, and stone marquetry. The Yellow from Sienna marble's quarries are still in operation today.
The pedestal of the statue of Saint-Pierre at the Basilica of Sacre Coeur in Paris was made out of this Yellow from Sienna marble. It was also used for a memorial plaque at the church of Emm and for the pedestal of the Medici Venus at the Napoleon museum. The Chryser Building in New York is a good example of it's use for flooring.
