Synonyms: Beola Verde, Beola Verde Spluga, Quarzite Verde dello Spluga, Quarzite Verde Spluga (according to EN 12440, addendum A), Spluegen, Spluegen Quarzit, Spluegen-Quarzit, Spluegen Gneis, Spluga, Verda Spluga

Location: Verde Spluga granite is quarried near Isola, Madesimo, Provincia di Sondrio, Lombardia, Italy, near to the border of Switzerland.

Description: Verde Spluga granite is a fissionable, light green gneiss of the Triassic period, with phengite. This stone internationally may be nominated as a granite but in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as a gneiss.

The veining and colour varies and a small sample of Verde Spluga granite may not be representative of the whole slab therefore swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes. Ideal for both interior and exterior use, Verde Spluga granite is frost free and probably polish constant outside.

Mineral Composition:

Technical and Physical Characteristics:
Bulk density: 2,675 kg/dm≥

Gneiss: A common and widely distributed type of rock formed by high-grade regional metamorphic processes from pre-existing formations that were originally either igneous or sedimentary rocks. Gneissic rocks are usually medium to coarse-foliated and largely recrystallized but do not carry large quantities of micas, chlorite or other platy minerals. Gneisses that are metamorphosed igneous rocks or their equivalent are termed granite gneisses, diorite gneisses, etc.
