Biancone is technically a sedimentary stone with regular stratification and with the presence of microfossils and other impurities that give it a naturally rustic appearance. Another typical feature of biancone marble are micro-cracks and minute abrasions on the surface which can also be enhanced by means of some finishes, for example brushed or sandblasted biancone marble. Despite its appearance covered by these veins similar to microfractures, biancone marble is a very resistant material and is therefore used to a greater extent in outdoor environments.
