Description of colouring and granulometry: relatively uniform granite of a greenish-grey to dark olive grey colour with
greenish-grey streaks and shading. This rock is originally made up of a lightcoloured stone which, during the chemical
transformations of its composition (metasomatism), turns a deep green colour. The hornblende and pyroxene are also
transformed into dark green chlorite, resulting in the original granular structure being lost. From a mineralogical point of
view, this stone is made up of feldspar, orthoclase and plagioclase (coloured green by small quantities of chlorite),
ransparent grey quartz, green chlorite and very small amounts of biotite and magnetite. It is quarried near the little town of
Prevailing applications: interior and exterior. Wall cladding, flooring, slab works.
