The dolomitic saccharoid marble from Crevoladossola is highly interesting for the many mineral species that have been found. It is also interesting for some analogies with the most famous dolomite occurrences of Binntal in Switzerland.

The Crevoladossola marble pertains to the Mesozoic metasedimentary cover that tectonically separates the Monte Leone and Antigorio nappes (lower Penninic Units).

The location of the quarry, at Lorgino di Crevoladossola, is the same of the historical Pavia quarry, which belonged to the «Fabbriceria del Duomo di Pavia» at the beginning of the 16th century. Nowadays, Lorgino quarry, operated by the company Tosco Marmi, is the only active marble quarry in the municipal territory of Crevoladossola (the other one, named Baulina, is inactive) and produces the commercial marble varieties known as: Palissandro Bluette, Palissandro Blu Nuvolato, Palissandro Classico, and Palissandro Oniciato. The quarry face is terraced and the extraction technology only uses diamond wire technology. The large extracted blocks are then selected according to their textural and chromatic features.

The Crevoladossola marble is fine-grained and has variable colour due to the different amount of phlogopite, disseminated sulphides mostly in the blue types, or tremolite; the most known types are whitish, with no or scarce phlogopite, or yellowish with evident layers of phlogopite (Palissandro Classico and Oniciato, respectively).

The first evidence of the use of the Crevoladossola marble is probably represented by a sculpture of a Roman man (T. Labienus), preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Milan. Since 13th and 14th centuries this material was widely utilised in the local architecture of Domodossola, Baceno and Montecrestese. In Lombardy the main representative buildings are the Cathedral (Duomo) in Pavia, whose construction begun in 1488, and Arco della Pace (Arch of Peace) in Milan, a 19th-century neoclassical triumphal arch with eight monolithic marble columns (10 m height). The marble is today used for internal facing, furnishings and valuable objects: in 1995 a block of Palissandro Classico was worked to produce the impressive sculpture called «L'Uovo della Pace» (The Egg of Peace) for UNICEF.
