Basaltina cannot be imitated or plagiarized because it is absolutely natural. Its structure and colour is the result of the confluence of lava, fire, earth and time. The lava which spewed out of the volcano eventually settled on the plains and once it had cooled it hardened to naturally form the ore rock we now know as Basaltina, with it its distinctive grey colour.

The Basaltina quarried in Bagnoregio comes in two different types: Classic and Selcino. Each has its own specific use and market.
Classic Basaltina is characterized by its inimitable stratified porosity and uniform texture, created bythe slow release of active gases and the long period required to cool the lava. This means that this type of stone can only be quarried by respecting the unique orientation  of its porosity.

The cooling time for the lava that produced Selcino Basaltina was shorter, creating a different texture; its pores were stablished at random. In the quarried stone this produces a dynamic and surprising effect.
