    Breche Violet is a very decorative Italian Marble quarried in Seravezza, Carrara Basin, located between Florence and Genoa, sometimes mistaken for Blue John Stone which is found in Derbyshire, England. Breche violet is of a basic creamy white, clouded colour with delicate tones of redish browns, broken into irregular angular shapes by veins. The primary veins are blue-violet in colour, the secondary veins a variety of colours. The quarries were exhausted prior to 1960 so it is no longer produced, but can still be found in covering interior walls and fire surrounds (please view an attached image example) etc. of ancient European castles, hotels and affluent homes.
