Note: A handsome shell marble from Tortosa, Spain, where it is still quarried. Its predominant color ranges from a reddish lilac to yellow, the color being dependent on the quantity of embedded snails: the yellow represents the mollusk and the lilac represents the seabed in which it sank. Broccatello was used extensively as surface ornamentation in churches in Rome and Naples, Italy.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een aantrekkelijk schelpmarmer uit het Spaanse Tortosa, waar het nog steeds wordt gewonnen. De hoofdkleur varieert van roodachtig lila tot geel, afhankelijk van de hoeveelheid slakken die het bevat. De gele kleur wordt bepaald door de weekdieren en het lila door de zeebedding waarin het is verzonken. Broccatello werd veelvuldig gebruikt als oppervlakteversiering in kerken in Rome en Napels. 
Spanish ..... Hermoso mármol de concha de Tortosa, España, donde todavía se extrae de canteras. Sus colores predominantes varían de lila rojizo a amarillo, dependiendo el color de la cantidad de caracoles incrustados: el amarillo representa el molusco y el lila, el lecho marino en el cual se acumularon. El broccatello fue utilizado abundamentemente en decoración de superficies en iglesias de Roma y Nápoles, Italia.
