Verde Antico Marble

verde antico marble

Verde antico marble, also known as Lapis Lacedaemonius, is a type of marble from Greece which was widely used by the Romans as an ornamental stone especially starting from the Augustan age.

Diabasic andesite is the name of verde antico marble from a petrographic point of view and it is a green stone with the presence of predominantly dark green, white or black clasts. Verde antico marble quarries are located in the Peloponnese in a village called Krokees and from which mainly small blocks are obtained (hardly exceeding one meter): for this reason, even in ancient times, verde antico marble has always been used in the form of tiles, small slabs or columns.
