Reminiscent of a piece of whitewashed oak combined with the staple grey veining of marble materials, Artscut Macaubus is a unique stone that is the height of luxury and delicate linear design. The contrast between the crisp whites of the background with the deep greys of the veining make this a very striking piece that will take centerstage of any home. It creates the perfect feature island or compliment to country-style kitchens.
Quartzite is a distinctive natural stone that is different from marble in that it does not contain calcium, a mineral that can cause a vulnerability in the stone, particularly to acidic products. Macaubus will not etch in the way that marble does when exposed to foods like lemons and oranges, with high acidic content. Therefore, Macaubus is suitable for food preparation and applications such as kitchen worktops, bar counters and countertops that require a luxurious yet sturdy stone.
Macaubus is a quartzite stone under EU mineral classification, and granite in the US and China. It comes in very large slabs, with dimensions varying across batches. Each batch has its own unique beauty and will vary with every block, which is why it is recommended that you go and view the slabs in person and hand select those that will be used for your project.
