Bianco Venatino is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Carrara, Italy and is one of the many white marbles produced in this area. However, during the winter months, most of the quarries are shut down for a period of time because of the harsh conditions of snow and ice. Arizona Tile has selected this stone due to its crisp, vibrant white and its pencilthin veining. Structurally, this particular stone also happens to be very consistent between blocks. Small pin holes are common in Bianco Venatino, as well as within other white marbles that are produced in the surrounding area. It is also a softer stone, and may be susceptible to scratching or abrasion. The tile and slab come from different layers in the quarry. Therefore, it is important to note that if both are being used in a project, it is recommended to verify the colors prior to installation. There will be noticeable variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. 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 it be sealed to extend its longevity.
