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.
