Bianco Lasa marble is a white marble with a homogeneous and technically very hard and robust base coming from Val Venosta in Trentino-Alto Adige. Although bianco Lasa marble was already known and used by the Romans, for example for the construction of the milestones along Via Claudia Augusta (which connected the Roman and the Germanic territories), it was rediscovered only in modern times and the true mining activity began in the mid-19th century.
Famous for a long time with the name of “Tyrolean marble“, Lasa marble is extracted more precisely in the Covelano mountain located in the Lasa valley from which it takes its name.
The mineral content of Lasa white marble consists mainly of calcium carbonate (96-98%) and, to a lesser extent, of quartz, mica, calcite crystals and other minerals. The most famous technical peculiarity of bianco Lasa marble is undoubtedly its high resistance to atmospheric agents including frost and dew: even the antifreeze salt is not able to corrode it!
The pure translucent white color and the almost total absence of veins (delicate yellow-gold veins can be found on the Lasa marble gold vein variety) make the white Lasa marble a highly prized stone material at the international level.
In the past mainly used in the artistic field, with its rediscovery in modern times, bianco Lasa marble is almost always used in construction. The glossy and reflective surface of bianco Lasa marble, amplifying the brightness of the rooms and transmitting a sense of hygiene and cleanliness, is excellent for the creation of floors, cladding and walls in the bathroom or for the creation of furnishing accessories for the kitchen and living room.
Uses: Coverings, floorings etc.
Surface: Polished, honed, hammered, flamed, chiseled etc.
