Bianco Perlino, also known as White Perlino, is a famous italian marble extracted form quarries located in the North of Italy. The quarries of Bianco Perlino are mostly open-pit but sometimes also in gallery. The height of the marble layers ranges usually between 40cm and 70cm, only rarely it can be over 100cm or even 180cm. In this case, the blocks can be cut against the vein, and the slabs are named “cross cut”. The resulting slabs are all alike, and they have parallel horizontal veins. Bianco Perlino is charachterised by a milky white background,with some grey-green veins.
