Location: Rosso Verona limestone is quarried near Caprino Veronese also Cerro Veronese also Erbezzo and also Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, Provincia di Verona, Veneto, Italy. One of the most-quarried limestones for centuries.

Description: Rosso Verona Limestone is a Commercial name for a light to dark red nodular limestone of the Jurassic period (Lias) with nodules and partly stylolitic veins. This stone internationally may be nominated as a marble but in the area of application of the European Standard this stone must be nominated as limestone.

A small sample of Rosso Verona limestone is not representative owing to a variation in veining. Swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes. Rosso Verona limestone is ideal for both interior and exterior use however polish is only constant inside and having a tendency to break the random slabs are often strengthened with glass fibre netting and resin.

Mineral Composition: Average by %:

Limestone: A sedimentary rock, mainly composed of mineral calcite. The primary source of the calcite is usually marine organisms, which settle out of the water column and are deposited on the ocean floors as pelagic ooze (but see lysocline for information on calcite dissolution). Secondary calcite may also be deposited in super-saturated meteoric waters, as is evidenced by the creation of stalagmites and stalactites.
