More Information

Italian Basaltina is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Italy. Basalt has natural occurring holes which are filled with colored cement during the processing of the slabs. Italian Basaltina can be used for kitchen countertops, as well as exterior barbecue countertops. It is used extensively in Europe for sidewalks, street curbs, and cladding. Italian Basaltina is more durable than marble however; it is less durable than granite. It is not affected by citric acid such as lemons or limes. It is common to have darker vertical or horizontal grey veining in this stone. The use of a stone enhancer will darken Italian Basaltina for a richer look. Extra coats of sealer are required on this product due to the porosity of basalt.
