Lessinia stone, formerly known as “Prun stone”, is a limestone that appears in the quarry in the form of horizontal layers ranging in thickness from 4 to 40 cm, whose crust presents itself in bright red, pinkish colours and white or white-green.
The layers, with thickness up to 10 cm, are used squared with natural split or scratched, for flooring of gardens, paths, paving or fences.
Still in the rustic and garden sector, this stone, suitably worked, is used to aesthetically emphasise remarkable beauty, such as natural split or chipped Bolognini stone for walls, for natural split creases.
Particular use is made in the construction of planters, benches, handmade and machine-made tables, fireplaces and wells for gardens.
Characteristic is the use made of it on the Verona city paving and as a covering for the roofs of all the houses in Lessinia.
The thicker layers are processed like marble, obtaining valuable results for the edges and sills of windows and doors, with the possibility of obtaining a thicknesses from 4 to 20 cm with considerably lower costs than other marble materials.
Said contours can be honed, polished or knurled with bush-hammered, topped or chiselled edges.
Today, thanks to modern processing technology, Lessinia stone is a highly appreciated material for paving indoor environments such as living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, offices, taverns…, as it creates a particularly warm and welcoming atmosphere.
