Calacatta Gold Extra

Stone Type:
Marble

Sizes/Thickness:
3/4" (2cm slab)
1-1/4" (3cm slab)


Origin:
Italy

Finish:
Polished

Calacatta Gold Extra is quarried from the Borghini Quarry, which is located in the Apuan Mountain Range next to Carrara, Italy. Arizona Tile offers several other white marbles from the same quarry. The Gold Extra will have a creamy/white background with light grey veins and a mix of gold. This marble will have some small, black dots which are a normal characteristic. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before the stone reaches the polishing stages, these voids are filled with a polyester resin. Depending on how deep each void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, which will leave the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty 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. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
