Verde Alpi Green Marble

verde alpi marble

The term Verde Alpi green marble often refers generically to the serpentinite rocks extracted in northern Italy, in particular in the province of Aosta. For this reason, it is also often called Verde Aosta instead of marble Verde Alpi. Like the serpentine Prato marble, these are brecciated stones, variable in appearance, although it is almost always referred to as a dark green Alpi marble. However, the typical heterogeneity of the material also shows us slightly lighter shades.

A variety of this type of marble is Verde Alpi marble Rameggiato, characterized by the variable presence of lighter veins that contrast with the dark background.

The typical serpentine veins and the color variations tending towards dark green give Verde Alpi green marble unique characteristics.
