Nowadays, Perlato di Sicilia marmo is particularly appreciated in the Arab countries where it is in great demand.

Perlato di Sicilia quarries are concentrated in the Trapani area, particularly within the municipality of Custonaci. The name “Perlato di Sicilia” derives from the round patches of calcite that cover the ivory surface of this marvelous stone: in fact, with their brilliant white appearance, they recall the mother-of-pearl surface of shells. These “pearls”, typical of marmo Perlato di Sicilia, are larger than those of Perlatino di Sicilia. The surface, then, is further enriched with brown veins (due to iron oxides and clay) and brownish spots due to microfossils imprisoned in the stone.

Thanks to the incredible aesthetic and technical qualities (resistance to any temperature and foot traffic), Perlato di Sicilia is used both indoors and outdoors for the creation of floors, vertical coverings, stairs but also sculptures and funerary art.
