Grigio Monet marble shows us the most capricious face of Nature in all its splendor. The designs that use this type of material express an indisputable taste for the most hedonistic enjoyment of singular, evocative and very personal environments.
An environment covered Grigio Monet marble awakens sensations similar to those obtained when traveling, discovering or experiencing adventures. These natural stones are works of art in themselves and imprint a strong personality to the spaces that surround them.
Our reserves are estimated in around 50 years of continous supply. Data used in the reserve estimation includes the original as well as the current topography of the quarry area based on the quarrying activities up to the date of the study, as well as diamond drill-hole samples and sections on quarry faces, which are analysed every metre as to the marble quality.
Marble cutting is performed by a wire saw, a system where is possible to obtain the blocks sizes without surface rupture, also the diamond wires, fantini and all kind of latest technology.The productive exploitation consists of separating portions of rock in shapes as regular as possible (cubes and parallelepipeds) from the wall of the quarry through complex operating phases, that entail the drilling of horizontal and vertical holes in the mountain with hydraulic or pneumatic perforating hammers. A cable called a diamond wire is inserted in the drilled holes.
Our Grigio Monet Tile line uses a horizontal block cutter rathen than the traditional vertical block cutters as this help bring our costs down as the blade size required is smaller. The slabs are cut 2 to 3 mm over the desired thickness, after the block cutting process the slabs will be calibrated to desired thickness. After the calibration, the slabs will be polished, honed or brushed for final cutting in to specified dimensions of the project.
After classification the stones are counted and packaged on wooden crates for storage and subsequent delivery.
A label is placed on each crate with a description, format, thickness, etc.
