Back Granite - Brazil

White Ice

White Ice is extracted from a quarry in Espirito Santo, Brazil, renowned for its beautiful beaches, costal cuisine and sand dunes. With a white background and movements of gold and grey, this granite features a subtle personality. 

For millions of years, water penetrated deep into the stone through hairline cracks, provoking oxidation. It is precisely this process that created the discreet goldent colouration.

In the course of the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the stone’s surface to fill part of its porosity (or pores) and natural cracks that may be apparent. This has no incident on the durability, the maintenance or the beauty of the natural stone. It is possible that certain pores are too small to contain efficiently the resin, and reopen during the finishing stages. However, this does not affect the stone’s quality or beauty. Such as it is the case with many natural stones, it is recommended to apply a sealer to extend its beauty through time.
