Last month our company owners, Omer and Simone embarked into an amazing adventure to the lands of South-america with Antolini of Italy, to hand-select stone, because this is the only guaranteed way to find the very best quality and discover stones which are new to the market.
During their trip they visited three of the most exquisite stone quarries in Brazil and one of them owned by Antolini. While Brazil is very famous for its granite slabs and exotic quartzites, several other stone types are also produced there. This time they traveled to the state of Espirito Santo, just north of Rio de Janiero, a famous stone extraction and stone production place. Quarries in this area are spread out in the mountains and can be time consuming and difficult to visit due to the rugged and mountainous terrain. The Very trendy colors in our design industry like Lumix, Calacatta Do Brasil and Taj Mahal Quartzites are found in this areas. At the end the reward of finding new stone is well worth the effort.
