Size/Thickness:1-1/4" (3cm slab)
Roca Montana Granite is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the northern regions of Brazil and will have large crystals of feldspar, quartz and biotite. This material can have resin filled voids. The resin may not polish to the same shine as the stone in this product and may appear hazy in the look. Also, the resin may be depressed or lower than the rest of the slab as its possible that the resin will shrink during the processing. These resin filled voids are part of this product and will show up randomly in the slab. 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 other finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. Because of its unique qualities, the slabs are book-matched; meaning 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. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab or tile. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
