Black and Silver: the Nuxis marbles.
Different in appearance and structure but equally special, are the marbles extracted from the quarry in Nuxis, in southeastern Sardinia between Cagliari and Sant’Antioco Island. They are a dark marble named Black Secret and pale gray crystalline marble, Silver Moon.
This type of black marble is very dark gray in color, refined and unusual. It is suitable for fixtures and external and internal facing and particularly popular when given antiqued and bush hammered finishes. It features crystalline veining and chromatic nuances making it one of Sardinia’s most unusual materials.
Silver Moon is a crystalline marble in tones of gray, enriched with irregularly shaped grains of crystal and featuring unusual glints of color that enhance it and make it most suitable for interior decoration.
