Italian White Carrara Honed 2cm Marble
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.
Continuously quarried for over 2000 years, this classic symbol of wealth and refined taste has been employed in the construction of many of western civilization's most important monuments. It served as the preferred medium of expression by the great masters of the Italian Renaissance, and continues to inspire the discerning designer today.
Terrazzo and Marble has captured this stone's enduring elegance in Monte Bianco: a collection of the finest white marble of the region, produced by highly skilled craftsmen, to deliver a product of unparalleled quality.
Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting chiefly of recrystallized calcite or dolomite. Classic and luxurious marble is a top material selection when you are looking for that “wow” factor. Available in a wide variety of colors and durability levels clients should be aware that while marble is heat resistant it can be susceptible to scratches, stains and etching from household acids. Today’s sealers are quite advanced and can provide great protection from staining. Some marbles have been treated with a revolutionary new process “Antolini Zero Care”. This process does provide acid resistance for a period of time. Please ask a Terrazzo and Marble representative for more information. Marble can require regular maintenance but its unique elegant appearance makes it a top choice for many projects.
