The Frosini Pietre firm extracts Pietra Macigno from the Caprolo quarry since 1983. The quarry is located among the hills near the city of Greve in Chianti in Tuscany. The quarry has existed since the 18th century, and proof of this has been documented by Francesco Rodolico and Rino Sartori, two important researchers of Italian Geology. The geological formation of Macigno goes back to the Oligocene (about 30 million years ago), and presents itself with an alternation of grey to blue colored sandstone which is known as Pietra Serena. Frosini Pietre takes a lot of care in the extraction process, carefully selecting the stone already in this first phase, using this precious resource of the territory, in a sustainable and congruent manner.
