3/4″ (2cm slab)
Bardiglio is a dark grey and white marble that is often called Bardiglio Scuro, with “scuro” meaning “dark color” in Italian. Bardiglio will have a mix of light and dark grey tones within a slab, along with some areas of white. This marble will have sweeping veins and movement which will change on every shipment. 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 pits in the raw material. Before the stone reaches the polishing stages, these pits are filled with polyester resin. Depending on how deep each pit 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.
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.
It is common for Bardiglio slabs to have some dry surface veins which are white in appearance. The factory uses a flowing epoxy resin to fill these veins in during the production. If one of these dry veins has opened during shipment, your fabricator should be able to reapply flowing epoxy resin to fix the issue. Please consult with your fabricator in advance of shipping the slabs.
