Verde Orezza

Born 50 million years ago more than 20km under the surface of the earth's crust, the Orezza green, also called "the green of Corsica", is a semi-precious stone unique in the world. The only remarkable deposit is located in the regional natural park of Haute Corse. This dark and dense gem is a heavy volcanic rock with a grainy structure, composed of smaragdite crystals (a rare emerald green mineral variety), and other inorganic varieties that are not very common, such as Lawsonite, Titanite and Pumpellyite, ranging from bluish grey to ash grey.
