Colonial Cream is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Pottal, India. The background tone will be fairly consistent between shipments, but the veining will vary. Over millions of years, water has penetrated deep into the stone through small cracks and fissures, causing the iron oxide and other minerals to oxidize. It is this process that produces the varying gold tones that are visible in this granite. Due to its qualities, the slabs are book-matched, in which slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the slab to fill in any natural pits, cracks or fissures that may exist in the stone. This does not affect the durability, maintenance or beauty of the slab. 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. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity. As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity.
