Have you ever wondered why the Italian variety of white marble is considered as some of the world’s finest creations? Is it just like any other white marble only originating in Italy or is there more to the story? Let’s find out!
From its use in sculptures to adorning homes or to give an office area an extraordinary feel; white marble is known to transform any space into an embodiment of luxury. Bianco Lasa, an Italian white marble is unquestionably one of the most widely used and sought after natural stones in the world for centuries. But the question is, why?
Named after its place of origin the beauty of Bianco Lasa marble never gets old. Original Bianco Lasa marble is extracted only in one quarry, located in the village of Laas, in the North of Italy – Laaser Tal Valley. This small village is renowned for giving the world, the purest and strongest range of white marble.

Bianco Lasa marble is said to have formed over 400 million years. Over the course of hundreds of millions of years, organisms at the bottom of the ocean were compressed by gravity into beds of calcium crystals. As water bodies evaporated, the deposited remains formed into limestone. Intense pressure and heat from the earth forced the stone to metamorphose into marble. Over time the movement of tectonic plates around southern Europe caused the ancient seas to rise in the formation of the Alps, forcing marble into the mountains. What we now see is the Lasa marble 1567 meters above sea level. The white patches that you see on the mountains even from afar are in fact marble and not snow.
Even today, the demand for this white marble is staggering, which is probably why poor substitutes of white marble are sold under the name of Bianco Lasa in the market across the country. We at The Quarry bring to you the LAAS AUTHENTICO collection. Being one of the best Italian marble companies in India, we bring home the finest slabs of the whitest Bianco Lasa marble.
