MARBLE DECAY UNDER THE MICROSCOPE: A PHENOMENOLOGICAL CASE STUDY ON STERZING MARBLE SCULPTURES FROM THE GARDENS OF SCHOENBRUNN, VIENNA The contribution illustrates some of the most significant weathering symptoms of crystalline marble by the example of the coarse marble from Sterzing, using light and electron microscopic techniques. Aimed at elaborating a conservation concept for the baroque garden sculptures at Schoenbrunn, the microscopic studies revealed essential to understand and interpret surface decay phenomena and to establish key parameters for issues of conservation and restoration.
