The Stone

The name Luserna Stone refers to one of the most popular type of lamellar gneiss arising from a surface of about 50 square kilometers between the Valleys Pellice and Po.

It is a metamorphic rock consisting of different layers of quartz, feldspar and mica.

Normally the quarried material is divided in:
32% naturally split
13% for sawing
33% rocks
22% waste

 

From the geological point of view Luserna stone belongs to the Dora Maira massif and is the result of the metamorphic and structural alpine transformations of an original magmatic rock.
