Terrazzo

Terrazzo, an ancient artistic creation, consists of chips of glass, marble, or similar material fixed in tinted cement and then ground and polished to a smooth sheen.

During the 15th century, Italian mosaic craft workers pushed the leftover marble chips outside to their terraces where, over time, they became smooth from the foot traffic.

As one can see in today's perfected flooring and countertops, it was the similar beauty, uniqueness, and durability that led the architects and designers of past times to use terrazzo in numerous places such as St. Peter's Basilica and George Washington's Mount Vernon.
