Perlatino di Sicilia marble represents one of the most appreciated and well-known varieties of marble among the natural stones extracted in Sicily. It is clearly a “relative” stone product of the more famous Perlato di Sicilia from which it differs in color and some minimal technical characteristics. However, what unites the Perlatino di Sicilia marble with the Perlato di Sicilia is undoubtedly the undisputed elegance of its soft and timeless color, the excellent technical features and the versatility of use.
Perlatino di Sicilia is extracted in the territory of the municipality of Custonaci in the province of Trapani and it is technically a limestone breccia. The typical texture of Perlatino di Sicilia is given by the presence of fragmented fossils.
The beige background of Perlatino di Sicilia is of a unique elegance and the light spots of pure calcite further enhance its value. The stone surface of Perlatino di Sicilia is embellished with thin white or reddish veins as well as specks originating from the remains of small fossils of shells and other organisms.
The pleasant and delicate beige shade of Perlatino di Sicilia makes it an incredibly versatile marble used both in public construction and in private homes. The technical qualities make Perlatino di Sicilia applicable even in areas subjected to atmospheric agents or heavy traffic. Therefore, Perlatino di Sicilia is excellent for the construction of floors and stairs and for cladding, in particular in bathrooms.
