Green and Red Levanto

The Italian exploitation of the Green and Red Levanto - a marble or rather a serpentine rock mingled with green and white veins - dates back from the 12th century. Nowadays, only the quarries of San Giorgio and Rossola have continued its extraction. Among the great fireplaces realized with that marble, there is in the Palace of Versailles, the fireplace of the Antechamber of Dogs and the fireplace of Louis XVI style installed in the Grand Trianon.
