Calacatta Viola marble is a sedimentary carbonate rock. It comprises calcite (CaCO3), or a mixture of dolomite (Ca, Mg) and calcite. Originally it was limestone which transformed into marble over time.
The limestone rocks become marble thanks to the natural processes affecting them over millennia. Moreover, the term 'marble' comes from the old Greek word "Marmaris," meaning "shiny stone", describing the metamorphosis from limestone to marble.
The endurance of a Calacatta Viola marble worktop is one of its best characteristics.
Avoid boiling pots on the countertop without a coaster to keep your Calacatta Viola marble worktops in good condition. Despite their resistance to high heat, it is best to keep minimum care to ensure a longer lifespan.
Seal your marble worktops every 18 to 24 months, depending on how much use you give to the surfaces.
Yes. Calacatta Viola marble is porous like any natural stone due to its surface's micro-permeable nature. When a stone is porous, it can absorb liquids through micropores and its interfacial texture.
You can seal Calacatta Viola marble with an inexpensive stone sealant by spreading the transparent liquid over the surface and letting it rest for a minimum of 12 hours.
Repeat this process every 18-24 months, depending on how much traffic your marble surface receives.
Yes. If the chip or scratch in your marble worktop is over 5 mm deep, this part of the worktop becomes more susceptible to discolouration. You can repair chips on marble worktops by applying colour-matched stone resin, restoring the non-porosity in this area. A professional worktop installer may also buff the top layer of the stone to remove superficial scratches, restoring the original shine of the marble's surface.
Calacatta Viola marble, also known as Viola marble and Calcutta Viola, is a natural stone from Lucca in Massa.
