Bianco Romano is quarried in a bedrock quarry in the state of Espirito Santo, Brazil. The overall tone will change with each shipment due to the fact that at the top of the quarry, the blocks have been stained from water run off over millions of years and will have a light cream color. As they go deeper in the quarry, the color becomes much whiter. Burgundy veins are common in this granite with a variety of differing patterns. Due to its qualities, the slabs are book-matched, in which slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the slabs to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist in the stone. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the slab. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
