Arabescato

Arabescato marble is a highly prized variety of crystalline white with dark gray veins. Its name derives precisely from the distinctive veins called “arabesques.”
It is very similar to veined material, but unlike the latter it is distinguished by its darker-colored veins that are sometimes in the form of ovules.
It is quarried in the Versilia Apuan Alps, in the province of Lucca.

This valuable material, finds wide use in the realization of flooring and interior cladding, and is suitable for both modern and classical settings.
