More Information

Vancouver is a quartzite quarried from a bedrock quarry in Brazil. It resembles marble in appearance but is much harder and far more durable. As such, it can be used for kitchen countertops without having the scratching and etching issues experienced with marble. Vancouver has a creamy grey background with grey and taupe veining. There are hints of rose in some of the veins, which give the material an exclusive look. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks, or fissures that may exist. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this does not affect the durability, maintenance, or beauty of the stone. 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. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
