Our quarry has a secular history, enriched by the peculiar feature of beeing situated at the bottom of one of the most beautiful italian heritages: the Dolomites. From the quarry we extract three different types of marble, each characterized by a unique colour: Veined brown, Grey-pink and Grey.
It seems that in Castellavazzo this stone was extracted already in Roman time. The stone of Castellavazzo presents two colours: gray and red. The gray color is due to the presence of clay and graphite and is quarried in the surface, while the particular red colour is given by the presence of hematite and it lies deeper. It is the most prestigious stone in the area of Belluno for its aesthetic and hardness characteristics and one of the quarries is still active: the Marsor quarry, in the hamlet of Olantreghe, near Castellavazzo and other sites of extraction.Throughout the province of Belluno and further down, carried on rafts, we have been using it for centuries as a noble stone for the most beautiful and representative architectural parts for whether indoor or outdoor use as it resists to thermal swings
