Pizzul Marmi Aurisina received an award for the Best of StonExpo/Marmo+Mac in the "Style & Design" category at The International Surfaces Event on January 23-26, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. The award was determined by a panel of judges and presented by Stone World magazine.

The stone

Aurisina Lumachella is a grey marble with fossils characterised by a grey background that features a variable presence of shell-shaped fossils.

The quarry

The quarrying of Aurisina Lumachella is exclusive to a quarry located in the province of Trieste (North East of Italy) which is nestled between the Adriatic Sea and the Karst Plateau.

The applications

Being a very hard and compact stone, Aurisina Lumachella can be used sawn finish or processed in several finishes including polished, honed, brushed, bush-hammered, sandblasted, flamed and waterjet, proving to be suitable for a variety of structural and decorative applications including external and internal flooring and cladding, monuments and design objects.

A curiousity

Aurisina Lumachella is named after the village where the quarry is located, "Aurisina", and the peculiar shape of its fossils that resembles the shell of a snail, hence "Lumachella", namely "little snail" in Italian.

On a final note from Pizzul Marmi Aurisina, in a stone industry that is flooded with thousands of options, we gladly acknowledge that proposing a distinctive and unique material seems to represent an effective way to differentiate from the competition and stand out from the crowd. In this respect, our Aurisina Lumachella surely fits right in.
