Rouge Griotte Marble
Sourced from Belgium, Rouge Griotte was a popular marble of the 18th century, particularly among the royals who favoured this rich inimitable red for the fireplaces of their royal apartments. In fact, it is recorded that Louis XIV ordered many fireplaces to be made out of this red marble for the Versailles Palace in France. It is characterised by its intense cherry red colour with white veining.
