The story behind the stone

First brought to us by Michelangelo, Calacatta Gold Borghini Extra is one of the most sought-after and famous pieces of marble in the world, making it a timeless work of art in itself and of precious rarity. Its distinctive look of a smooth white field, paired with warming veins of gold and coffee add class and sophistication to any application.

Granzi, of the Borghini Quarry, noted that in this particular bundle is “the most beautiful thing about this marble is the depth it gives to its shine” and concluded that it is “the absolute perfect Calacatta Borghini.” Watch the full interview to learn what makes this material so special and why Aria Stone Gallery quickly fell in love with its flawless, sophisticated physique.

Borghini is the creme de la creme of marbles. It is the most exclusive, sought after type of marble in the world. One of the reasons it is so rare and highly sought after is because it is mined very infrequently. Anywhere from 1-2 blocks per week – roughly 50-60 slabs per block on average – whereas other larger quarries mine a lot more. For comparison sake, Bianco Carrara marble quarries mine 100 plus blocks of Carrara a week (all combined). Therefore, Borghini is a lot less common, making it very unique.

What sets it apart

Our boutique collection is hand-selected, ensuring only the highest of quality slabs are selected. Making our collection very limited. With each slab being unique, your stone is truly one of a kind.

Description

See it applied

Stone is a natural solid formation of one or more minerals formed over millions of years through pressure. The minerals in stone came from the same liquid and gas minerals that formed the Earth. The Earth developed as a massive body of gas and liquid minerals that slowly cooled and condensed to a solid core. Through pressure, the Earth’s crust began to form and heavy minerals were forced down to the core of the Earth where they were trapped. As the crust got thicker, it squeezed around the inner core which created intense pressure and heat from within the Earth. Crystals and other solid forms began to grow from the mineral vapors that were being released. As the Earth’s crust began to expand and erode, heat and pressure pushed the solid minerals up to the Earth’s surface which formed colossal rock beds, which we refer to as “quarries.” The process to make these massive rock deposits took over one-hundred million years.  Quarries are found all around the world, with the majority located in: Italy, Spain, Turkey, United States, Mexico, China, Taiwan, India, Greece, Canada, France, and Brazil.

From the remote mountainsides of far-flung, exotic destinations to the comfortable, classy interior of Aria Stone Gallery, we strive to consistently bring you the very best and most unique offerings from Mother Earth.

Aria Stone Gallery travels around the globe to hand select natural stone directly from the most prestigious quarries. We make selections based on the uniqueness of each slab and only purchase stone with deep-rooted history. Simply put, we focus on quality, rather than quantity. We only carry slabs that are a 9 or a 10 in quality and will not stock natural stone that does not live up to our high standards simply because of demand. Our goal is to share this strong passion for stone, and to help customers discover the uniqueness and beauty of every natural wonder in our gallery.

Transparency is at the heart of Aria. With the same pricing online as in the galleries, you will always know what you pay for materials versus labor. Every lot of material is professionally photographed for accurate color representation, ensuring what you see is what you receive.

Hand-Selected. First Quality Stones. 100% of the Time, All the Time.
