Marble Italian Cream
Size/Thickness:3/4" (2cm slab)
Italian Cream is quarried from a bedrock quarry in northern Italy. This cream marble will have thin quartz veins running throughout the slabs. The structure of this marble gives it an elegant look and the cream color makes it easy to use in almost any décor. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched; meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and brushed to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before the stone reaches the polishing stages, these voids are filled with polyester resin. Depending on how deep each void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, which will leave the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. As a natural stone product it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
