Triesta Marble

recognized as the third most renowned limestone in Egypt, stands as a top-selling stone variant. Its quarries are strategically positioned across both the northern and southern regions of the Sinai Peninsula. Notably, the premier quality Triesta Marble blocks originate predominantly from the southern areas, ensuring distance from conflict zones. The procurement of large, flawless Triesta blocks proves challenging due to prevalent defects within many Sinai Pearl blocks. Available in two distinct hues – yellowish and grey – the yellowish variation of Triesta Marble surpasses the grey in prevalence.
