Marble inlay also known as Parchinkari, Pietra dura or pietre dure is the same art work which has been used on the walls of TAJ MAHAL built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in Agra (India) and also in other Mughal monuments. Semi-precious stones such as Lapis lazuli, Onyx, jasper, cornelian have been combined with marble of various hues to create designs of unsurpassed elegance.
In this art, also known as pietra Dura inlay, beautiful floral and geometric patterns are created using various semi-precious stones like LAPIS LAZULI (Afghanistan), MALACHITE (South Africa), TURQUOISE (Iran), CORAL (Italy ), CORNELIAN (India), PAUA SHELL (New Zealand) and many other stones.
