Billiemi grey marble is a Sicilian marble with a dark gray background color jagged with clay-colored and yellow-pink spots, used for more than a thousand years and particularly present in Palermo construction.
Billiemi grey marble is named after the Billiemi mountain from which it is extracted. The mountains on which the quarries of Billiemi grey marble are located in the north-western area of the city of Palermo.
From a geological point of view, Billiemi grey marble is a limestone breccia with a uniform gray color and rich in fossil residues which create an intertwined texture of dark grey veins.
Among the main qualities of Billiemi grey marble it is appropriate to include durability, compactness and low water absorption index: all characteristics that make it very resistant to frost and atmospheric agents and therefore suitable for outdoor use (even if the applications of Billiemi grey marble are innumerable).
In recent years, precisely because of its excellent chromatic and physical characteristics, Billiemi grey marble has become famous and in demand all over the world.
