A basaltine rock of volcanic origin created from rapidly cooled lava. This stone offers a salt and pepper effect which is ideal for functional work surfaces.

Because of the excellent technical properties, Imperia Black is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. The dark finish can bring any space a bit of sobriety.

This product is in great demand by architects and interior designers due to the continuity of each piece and because it’s a calm, elegant and quiet stone. Essentially a single color, it still features the nuances of natural stone.
