In the summer of 2019, certain classic styles and elements continue to maintain a place in design plans. All things to do with Calacatta Marble Designs is one of those styles. Let’s talk about this for a moment.
Why not start with a definition of marble. According to geology.com: “Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite (CaCO3) and usually contains other minerals, such as clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite.” Why is this important? Very simple. Many folks don’t understand that all the typical natural stones: marble, granite, limestone, travertine, etc., will perform quite differently. So best to understand what you are working with.
Here are few things to know. While marble is incredibly versatile and durable. It is not an invincible surface. Hammers….nope. Kitchen acids….probably not. You get the picture. We are always here to answer these type of questions.
In this post, our focus has been on our Calacatta Arabescato Marble. As you can see, this stone has lots of “movement.” This should be understood on the front end of the project. For many stone aficionados, this “movement” implies authenticity. We agree. Thanks for reading!
