Lincoln Silver marble is quarried from a bedrock gallery quarry in Aspen, Colorado. A gallery quarry is when they tunnel into the mountain carving out a large opening or room as they remove the blocks. The main gallery quarry, which is closed, is over 100 years old and was once owned by the Rockefellers and supplied marble for the Lincoln Monument. The current gallery which is located higher on the mountain is 10 years old and uses modern extraction methods to remove the blocks. Lincoln Silver has a light grey background with darker grey veins thoughout. Similar to the quarries in Carrara, Italy where the darker areas of stone are named Bardiglio, this quarry with it’s many striking white marble varieties also offers an area of stone with darker contrast which is the Lincoln Silver. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are bookmatched; 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 this be sealed to extend its longevity.
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.
