Giallo Siena Marble: The famous and prestigious yellow marble comes from the quarries of Colle Valle d’Elsa near Siena in Italy. Traditionally it was used almost exclusively for castles and palaces, the Lodges of the Pope etc. Today Giallo Siena is also used in various other ambiences where the golden color gives a touch of luxury and exclusivity, e. g. in hotel suites and bathrooms, for floor patterns and borders as well as columns and fireplaces. During the Grand Tour many souvenirs of this period were adorned extensively with this wonderful and rare Marble.
