Carrara Extra Honed

Stone Type:
Marble

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


Origin:
Italy

Finish:
Honed

Carrara Extra Honed 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. Carrara Extra Honed is limited in supply as the quarries yield more Bianco Carrara blocks. Carrara Silver and Bardiglio also come from the same quarry. 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 honing 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 honed 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.
