Nero Marquina is an almost impossibly sleek variety of marble with a satiny black color and shocks of vibrant white crackling throughout. Quarried in only a handful of locations across the world, this variety of marble’s rich color and striking contrast makes it a highly sought after material that is only growing in popularity.
Nero Marquina marble tile takes the beauty of this exquisite black marble and puts it in a flexible format, opening up new possibilities and uses. Rather than shipping a massive, custom-cut slab that can easily be damaged through misuse, authentic Nero Marquina marble tile can be much more easily used to fit your unique vision. The stylistic malleability of marble tile ensures that you can build the space you want, no substitutions needed. We offer multiple styles of Nero Marquina mosaic tile, including our Nero Marquina Herringbone tile, Nero Marquina Hexagon tile, and our signature Casablanca Carrara and Nero Marquina Hexagon mosaic tile. We also offer standard Nero Marquina 6×12 subway tile. All of Riad Tile’s Nero Marquina offerings are carefully inspected for quality and consistency before being polished to shining perfection.
As a bit of background on this fascinating variety of marble, Nero Marquina can be found in several places across the world where the geological conditions naturally produce its unique appearance. Nero Marquina quarries are located in China, Iran, and Spain’s Basque Country, where the earth is rich in natural bitumen, a form of petroleum. The bitumen infuses with the marble under the earth’s immense heat and pressure, tinting it a shade of dark grey. As they’re removed from the earth and hewn into the proper shape, Nero Marquina slabs are meticulously polished until gleaming black, exposing a color that is becoming a part of so many homes today.
Nero Marquina is the perfect way to introduce deep black into your latest renovation, without the black completely draining the color from the rest of the room. Marble’s reflective surface tends to absorb and reflect surrounding light, causing our tiles to glow in the right light and offsetting the darkness of the background. The white streaking serves to add a touch of contrast that brings just a dash of levity to the sleek tile and opens it up to further contrast with your preferred decor.
