Verde Antique, the world’s finest serpentine, is born right here in the USA and has been quarried in the green mountains of central Vermont for over a 100 years! Verde Antique is often referred to as “marble”, while it has the warmth and look of marble, it is actually harder and less porous than many types of granite. It’s low absorption rate and flexural strength makes it a favorite among architects, designers and builders on projects throughout the world. It can be found in kitchens, courthouses, museums and many commercial buildings.
