Breccia Portofino Marble, a rich but subtle marble with outrageous markings that I would describe as somewhere in the realm of earthy mauve’s merging with waves of soil-like burgundies. The word “Breccia” is an Italian word for describing a rock that has broken like segments of minerals that have been cemented together by a fine grained matrix. The striking appearance of Brecciated materials have long been fancied for their appearance for sculpture’s and architectural elements. There are many Breccia type marbles still used today. Brecciated marbles were once thought by the Romans to be “Precious” and were therefore used in high-profile public buildings. This material is available in a 2cm (3/4″) thickness in a Polished finish. This stone would surely be ideal on a fine piece of furniture or to clad an entire bathroom, vanity & all!
