Portoro Gold

Portoro marble is beloved for its deep black ground, which features slight, graceful white undulations and parallel golden veining. It’s opulence has been prized since the Baroque period. Portoro was quarried extensively during the late 1500s and again during the 18th and 19th centuries and during the Art Nouveau period. It was largely used for fireplaces, furniture inlays and tabletops, as it is today.
