Verde Antico

Detail of a verd antique column in the Church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus (now the Küçuk Ayasofya Camii) in Istanbul, Turkey (527-536 CE).
Verd antique (obsolete French, from Italian, verde antico, ancient green), also called verde antique or Ophite, is a serpentinite breccia popular since ancient times as a decorative facing stone. It is a dark, dull green, white-mottled (or white-veined) serpentine, mixed with calcite, dolomite, or magnesite, which takes a high polish. It is sometimes classed, erroneously, as a variety of marble (serpentine marble, Connemara marble, Moriah stone, etc.). It has also been called and marketed as "ophicalcite" or "ophite".
Non-brecciated varieties of a very similar serpentinite, sometimes also called "verd antique", have been quarried at Victorville, California;Cardiff, Maryland; and Rochester in Addison County, Vermont.
