Aspen White Close Up
Sizes/Thickness:3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)
Aspen White is quarried in the desert in Namibia. Blocks are shipped to Italy for slab processing since there are only a few factories in South Africa that have the correct equipment to process slabs. This is a new quarry but its already able to supply large blocks that are sound in structure. The background color will stay white but the veining and movement will change from block to block. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during additional finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
