Splitting exalts the chromatic features of the stone, allowing exclusive results.
The wide colour range of ARABESCATO OROBICO allows producing very fine articles of indisputable beauty.
With these qualities, Arabescato Orobico is a material which can be used both traditionally for flooring, facing etc. and for furnishing elements such as columns, vases, amphoras, tables, tops for bathrooms and objects in general, but also for outdoor facings with an unpolished surface. With exposed stones/split stones for walls of 15 cm and unpolished facings with thicknesses of 3 cm.
Arabescato Orobico is perfect for fine floors and facings, especially in large areas that allow showing off to the best the splendid geometric designs with open veins that are obtained by meticulous cutting and elaborate laying studies. The colours characteristics are highlighted in particular both by the polishing and by the splitting which exalt the warm colours.
