Verde Antique which is only found in Italy is sometimes confused with Irish Connemara Marble from the West of Ireland as both are so similar in appearance, is often referred to as “marble”, while it has the warmth and look of marble, it is actually harder and less porous than many types of granite. It's low absorption rate and flexural strength makes it a favorite among architects, designers and builders on projects throughout the world.
