Palissandro White Marble

palissandro white marble 1

Palissandro white marble is a prestigious stone material from northern Italy, used for the construction of some very important monuments such as the very tall monolithic columns of Arco della Pace in Milan or the pillars of Duomo di Pavia.
One of the peculiarities of Palissandro white marble is that it can be extracted from a single quarry: the Crevoladossola quarry, in the Ossola Valley, the only source of Palissandro white marble in the world. Palissandro white marble is just one of the varieties present in the aforementioned extraction basin. In fact, there are also very different nuances depending on the area and the height at which the block is extracted, as well as from the block itself: in addition to Palissandro white marble, it is possible to find varieties with gray or beige or even blue tones (e.g. Palissandro blue and Palissandro bluette marble).

The rare beauty of Palissandro white marble is mainly given by its mineralogical composition: in particular, it is a metamorphic rock made up of different types of minerals such as dolomite and, to a lesser extent, phlogopite, calcite, epidote and titanite. This combination makes Palissandro white marble an incredibly bright and luminous rock, as if it were studded with very small crystals and gems.
The background of Palissandro white marble has a light tone slightly tending towards cream and caressed by soft hazelnut nuances.
Palissandro white marble floors are perhaps the most recurring application and, thanks to the great resistance of this material, they can be installed both indoors and outdoors. Finally, the decorative power of Palissandro white marble makes it the perfect material for ornamental uses.
