Diving into two Marble surfaces this week, along with another eye-catching Quartzite. If you haven’t taken a look already, you can also see all of the latest materials to arrive in the last month in our October update. Now, let’s begin!
The Bianco Calcite (White Calcite) is a gorgeous white Marble, originating from Brazil. It can be utilized as is usual with other Marble surfaces, being a fairly versatile, resistant material. The formation of a calcite, as a mineral, results in the different textures visible on the surface, with varying levels of shine and reflection. This adds to the overall bright aesthetic of the stone.
Calacatta Machia Vechia
Calacatta Machia Vechia is an ornate marble that more closely resembles an exquisite work of art than a natural stone. Clearly, it would make for a stunning feature or statement piece. This Italian marble can be used for table tops, flooring or to decorate entire bathrooms. You could use as much of it as you like and never get bored with it. Being quite a distinct and figured pattern, using it book-matched is also very effective, which you can see an example of here.
Rafaello, another striking Brazilian stone, this time a Quartzite. The surface here ranges from very light, almost white in colour, to the dark grey of the veining. I personally like the natural, rugged, rocky look of this material, very similar to Moonrock, another fantastic looking grey Quartzite.
