Carrara Extra

Stone Type:
Marble

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


Origin:
Italy

Finish:
Polished

Carrara Extra is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Carrara, Italy. It will have a whiter background than Bianco Carrara, which is available at a lower cost. In white marbles, as the background gets whiter and has fewer veins, the cost increases. For instance, Due to the white background of Bianco Venatino, it is higher in cost that Carrara Extra. It is common to have some small pits in the Italian white marbles. The factories fill the pits with polyester resin, but during the processing and polishing of the slabs, some pits may re-open. 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.
