Cafe Forest

Stone Type:
Marble

Sizes/Thickness:
12"x12"x3/8"
3/4" (2cm slab)

Trim:
3/4"x12" Dome Liner


Origin:
Rajasthan, India

Finish:
Polished

Café Forest is quarried from a bedrock quarry near the village of Vidhasar in the district of Bikaner, Rajasthan, India. This particular marble is very strong compared to others in the industry and usually requires granite machinery to cut and polish the stone. Characteristics in veining and movement will tend to vary between shipments, depending on the portion of the quarry from which the stone was extracted. It is also a softer stone, and may be susceptible to scratching or abrasion. There will be noticeable variations in color and movement between pieces. Therefore, it is important and recommended that a range of this product be viewed before finalizing a purchase. 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. It is a common characteristic for this stone to have voids in the raw material. Before it reaches the polishing stages, these voids are filled with a polyester resin. Depending on how deep the void is, the resin may shrink as it dries, leaving the surface of the filled area slightly lower than the rest. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. As a natural stone product it is recommended that it be sealed to extend its longevity.
