Calacatta Colorado is quarried from a gallery quarry near Aspen, Colorado. It is 300 feet wide by 300 feet thick and 3 miles long. This quarry was discovered in 1873 in the Colorado Rockies at an altitude of 9,300 feet above sea level. The quarry is inside the mountain, therefore production happens year-round, even during the harsh winters. This marble is 99.5% pure calcite. The Lincoln Memorial, built in the early 1900’s, was made from this marble. 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. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. As a natural stone product it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
