Peperino Marble Grey

peperino marble grey

Grey Peperino marble is a stone of volcanic origin particularly widespread in the provinces of Viterbo and Rome. Grey Peperino marble, or Piperino, owes its name to the Latin term “piper” which means pepper: this is because its surface is rich in black particles of biotite that recall, in fact, peppercorns.
Grey Peperino marble was formed through a cementation process of materials originating from the ancient Cimino volcano together with other particles of various kinds as well as minerals, plant and animal residues. All this mix of elements has consolidated over the centuries making grey Peperino marble an extremely durable material, resistant to atmospheric agents while remaining perfectly workable.
