Istanbul is a polished granite quarried from a bedrock quarry in Brazil. This granite has fluid movement displaying across a creamy background. It has varying areas of taupe coloration and brown veining throughout. The gold oxidation will vary from shipment to shipment, depending on the location in the quarry the block came from. 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. 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 does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
