In a region in Italy about 15 kilometers off Trieste, an area reveals a marvelous find. Called Aurisina Marble, its name is derived from a quaint village from which it is quarried. It is also referred to as Aurisina Fiorita Marble, Aurisina Fiorito Marble, Aurisina Granitello Marble, Aurisina Chiara Marble, Repen Classico Marble, Repen Zolla Marble, Fior Di Mare Marble, and Roman Stone Marble.
Aurisina Marble's neutral beige color makes it quite versatile. The light hue gives it the ability to blend well with a variety of other materials, making it an ideal and versatile material. From classic to modern, Aurisina Marble can be incorporated into any design.

You are probably more familiar with marble than you realize. From Michelangelo's mighty carrara marble David, to the intricately carved cenotaphs of the Taj Mahal, to the royal Marble Arch of Buckingham Palace, marble has been the stuff of civilized architecture and art for centuries. Being a form of limestone, it is softer than granite, making it more susceptible to deterioration and wear but a simple, regular maintenance routine will keep marble looking beautiful.
Marble has a soft, sophisticated aura. Small interior spaces will especially benefit from marble's less "busy" feel when compared to granite thanks to its large, flowing veins.
Certain marbles can be “book matched,” meaning the edges of two panels are paired to create a mirror image. Book matching's effect is best expressed on large panels.
