3/4″ (2cm slab)
Calacatta Gold is quarried in the Apuan Mountains near Carrara, Italy. This marble comes from a gallery quarry which means that the quarry is inside the mountain. Because they don’t have to contend with the cold winter weather, this quarry runs year round. Blocks still need to be moved down the mountain so during the winter months snow and ice can limit the production of this marble. Calacatta Gold will always have a creamy white background with taupe/gold veins. 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. A full tile, mosaic and molding package is available in Calacatta Gold.
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.
