Botticino Marble Botticino is found in the centre of particularly pure limestone deposits, formed during the Jurassic period over 200 milion years ago. It is extracted from the Pre-Alps of Lombardy, north-east of Brescia.
Its characteristics make it a higly prized marble, used in prized applications both internally and externally at any latitude and in any environmental condition. The phisical, mechanical and structural characteristics of Botticino consist of basic paste formed by limestone and micro-crystal granules, ivory-white in colour, with different veining depending on the diffusion of oolite, the presence of stylolites and different striations of varying sizes of other elements.
These characteristics determine the different varieties of the Botticino.
