Statuario Colorado 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. Statuario Colorado is quite similar to the Italian Statuary, it is elegant with a clean white background and understated soft fine grey 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. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab or tile.
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.
