From this quarry, located in the famous Ruvo di Puglia basin, several varieties of Perlato Svevo are extracted. The marble is of metamorphic origin, free of impurities and characterized by a very homogeneous background, both in design and color, making it suitable for any type of use, even for dimension work in which uniformity is an essential requisite. This prized decorative marble is particularly appreciated in the international market, especially the Middle East.
Perlato Svevo is a calcareous stone. Its background is a golden yellow with small yellow hazelnut dots due to the sectioned fossils. The quality is established by the brightness of the background colour and the absence of black spots.
All, interior and exterior (only if protected against the atmospheric agents). For applications such as vanity tops and counters, please ask your nearest distributor for special treatment prior the installation.
