Cafe Forest is quarried from a bedrock quarry near the village of Vidhasar in the district of Bikaner, Rajasthan, India. This particular marble is very strong compared to others in the industry and usually requires granite machinery to cut and polish the stone. Characteristics in veining and movement will tend to vary between shipments, depending on the portion of the quarry from which the stone was extracted. Due to this stone's 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. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before it reaches the polishing stages, these voids are filled with a polyester resin. Depending on how deep the void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, which will leave the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
