Shades and variations of natural colors

The use of basalt treated with oxides is a green and design solution of great potential that combines one of the oldest stones on earth with colors of equal natural origin and history. Indeed, the addition of oxides gives the surface of basalt a unique and personalized appearance, creating color effects and textures that can vary following and enhancing the stone’s own texture. Such oxides like iron, copper, and manganese can be applied to the surface of basalt through controlled oxidation processes, achieved through the combination of water, temperature, and air. This creates color effects that can range from reddish-brown to olive-green and blue-gray, giving basalt a rustic and natural appearance.
