Crema Marfil is quarried from a bedrock quarry in a mountain range near Novelda, Spain. Arizona Tile carries two selections of Crema Marfil including Crema Marfil Classic, which is available only in tile. Characteristically, Crema Marfil has less veining and a clearer background color, while Crema Marfil Classic visibly has more veins and fill. Since Crema Marfil is a marble, it is softer and may be susceptible to scratching or abrasion. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before it reaches the polishing stages, these voids are filled with a polyester resin. Depending on how deep the void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, leaving the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone.Piece to piece variation in shade or color are inherent in all natural stone products; therefore, when installing natural stone tile, it is recommended to mix tiles from several boxes at a time during installation to achieve the best range of color. As natural stone products, it is recommended that these be sealed to extend their longevity.
