Bianco Antico is quarried from a bedrock quarry in the state of Ceara, Brazil. The background color of this material is primarily white and gray, with burgundy and taupe visible in the areas of movement. The clear quartz crystals throughout add depth to the look of this granite. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the stone. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this will not detract from the overall quality or appearance of the stone. 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 it be sealed to extend its longevity. This granite is also known as Royal Silk.
