Volcanic rock is procured in Sicily from Etna, the only active volcano in Europe. Thanks to a high temperature of forming and low cooling process, this type of rock is durable, homogeneous and has exceptional technical features on a global scale.
The rock is excavated in blocks from stone-pits and cut into slabs of different sizes and thicknesses. At the beginning, the slabs are carefully picked and then cut into the desired shapes of tables.
It is possible to obtain traditional shapes (round, rectangular, square, or oval) or special ones, also those tailored to the Customer’s needs. The cut slabs of volcanic rock are then enameled, so that it is possible to subsequently hand-make ornaments on their surface. Afterwards, they proceed to the phase of firing that is conducted in the temperature of approximately 1000 Celsius degrees, in different stages.
A volcanic rock table is indestructible and resistant to temperatures from 1000 to - 50 Celsius degrees. On top of that, it is also highly resistant to impacts and scratches. It can be cleaned with any product and there is no need to cover it with a tablecloth.
