Calacatta Gold Extra Polished 18"x18"x3/8 Monte Bianco Collection
Marble has both scientific and commercial definitions. Scientific marble was once limestone that achieved metamorphosis from intense pressures and high temperatures within the earth. This trauma altered its crystalline structure, introducing other minerals that produced the valuable colors and veining seen in the stone. Commercially, any stone capable of taking a polish (with the exception of granite) is known as marble. This includes travertine, onyx, serpentine, and limestone.
Monte Bianco is a collection of the finest white marble of the region, produced by highly skilled craftsmen, to deliver a product of unparalleled quality. Deep in the Apuane Mountains of Tuscany, Italy lies the most beautiful white marble the world has ever known. It is here that the rich tradition of Italian marble production began, and it is this exquisite stone that has inspired so many throughout human history.
