Calacatta Super Extra

Stone Type:
Marble

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


Origin:
Italy

Finish:
Polished

Calacatta Super Extra is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the Apuan Mountain Range next to Carrara, Italy where several different quarries of Calacatta Marble are located. Super Extra is one of the top selections of Calacatta having a more uniform veined pattern with a creamy white background. Black mica spots are common in this type of Calacatta. These mica spots normally are on the outer edge of the gray veins that run through the slabs. This marble can be used for kitchen countertops, however it is important to remember that it is a marble and can scratch, etch or stain. Sealing the slab and using a cutting board when appropriate are strongly recommended. 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. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
