Ruin Marble Sphere

by Superba


A cityscape-esque patterned mineral.

Get connected with this sublime stone form to center and ground yourself.

Handmade in Italy and imported from Rome, the Ruin Marble Sphere by Superba is a stunning example of the contrast and tension created when human effort molds and shapes a raw product of the earth. Size: 8mm diameter.

Why Alcove loves this:

🌍Every piece is unique, in deep and dusty iterations of green, brown, black and red.

🌍Ruin Marble is the common name for a highly-sought for and rare mineral formation known to occur in Florence, Italy, named as such because its unusual geometric patterning resembles a landscape painting or city scape.

🌍Homeopathic healers recommend Ruin Marble for enhancing connection with intellectual states of mind and knowledge.

Providing 'Useful Tools' and 'Beautiful Objects' is Superba's raison d'être, or rather their ragione per essere! Launched in Rome in 2018, they work directly with ceramicists, stone carvers and woodworkers to execute appealing, minimal designs.

With a storefront located on the "Street of the Carpenters" in Rome's Sant’Angelo neighborhood, right off the Tiber River, Superba's modern, boutique approach is a first for the region. An area with a complicated past, Sant'Angelo has recently attracted a number of young creative business with its village-like charm and profound sense of community. 

Alcove is proud to bring their work stateside and collaborate on the exclusive blue "Fathom" finish.
