Slab Sunday: Rosso Levanto

Rosso Levanto is a marble Serpentinite that is quarried in Turkey.
In America and China serpentinites are sold commercially as marble.  So if you go into your local slab asking for Rosso Levanto serpentinite they may look at you like you are crazy.  :)

Rosso Levanto is a dark red colored stone with white and or cream veining.  Sometimes it can lean on the brown side and sometimes you will find slabs with a bit of green veining or gold veining.
