Basaltite stone is nowadays extracted from the quarry located in Poggio Apparita, just beside Office and factory.
This is a hillside quarry, worked opencast, and located just below a gentle rise at an altitude of 560 meters. Access is by means of a secondary road that is hardly noticeable, an important aspect in visual impact’s terms.
Basaltite® uses extremely up-dated extraction methods for a Basalt quarry. A sectional cutter with diamond wire facilitates the cutting of the blocks from banks.
G.B. Basaltite can guarantee constant quality, even for very large quantity projects, due to the large dimensions of the quarry, the compact stone structure and its uniform aspect.
