Calacatta Macchia Vecchia

Stone Type:

Marble


Sizes/Thickness:

3/4" (2cm slab)


Origin:


Italy

Finish:


Polished

Calacatta Macchia Vecchia is quarried from a bedrock quarry near Carrara, Italy where several different quarries of Calacatta marble exist. Over millions of years, water has penetrated deep into this stone through small cracks and fissures. This process causes the iron oxide and other minerals to oxidize producing the rich, vibrant gold tones that are visible in this stone. A resin is used to fill in these fissures, which can be visible. It may be possible to feel a slight indentation where the resin was applied. 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. 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.
