Botticino Fiorito

Stone Type:
Marble

Size/Thickness:
3/4" (2cm slab)


Origin:
Breccia, Italy

Finish:
Polished

Botticino Fiorito is quarried in a bedrock quarry near Breccia, Italy. The beige color tones and pencil-thin veins will vary between shipments, due to the large number of blocks that are quarried and shipped all over the world each month. 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, especially for larger projects. 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 it be sealed to extend its longevity.
