The dark gray background tending to brown is then distinguished by the presence of white vertical veins and darker shades tending to rust. The presence of these clear saline elements and darker patches are a peculiarity of Pietra Medea.
Pietra Medea is often used for grey marble wall cladding and flooring. Even if it is installed both indoors and outdoors and adapts very well to different styles thanks to its neutral tones, Pietra Medea is especially suitable for creating large outdoor floors.
