Emperador Light is quarried from a bedrock quarry near Novelda, Spain. In this particular marble, it will be normal to see white crystals and veins that are concentrations of white and clear calcite. It is also a softer stone, and may be susceptible to scratching or abrasion. There will be noticeable variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. 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, leaving the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the stone. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
This marble is also known as Emperador Claro, Monte Carlo or Spider Light.
