“Just as happy in a contemporary, transitional, or rustic setting, Donatello appears timeworn and stylish all at the same time.”
with less scratching and acidic etching than what can happen on traditional Italian marble kitchen countertops. Since the gray and white kitchen trend appears here to stay, our quarry has gone the extra mile to meet the need for color-appropriate stones such as Donatello. Considered a hybrid stone, it contains a small percentage of less-porous material such as dolomite or quartz, making its surface overall more durable and an excellent choice for homeowners. In fact, dolomite is often used for acid neutralization in the chemical industry, so its properties are on display in a hard marble like Donatello.
Even though Brasigran is a high-tech facility, each stone is still individually touched, inspected, and processed by a person, which is in keeping with CRS’s high standards. Stones are processed in one of several ways – polished, sawn cut, sanded, rock-faced, sandblasted, or tumbled – providing a variety of looks to the marketplace to suit any homeowner’s style. See Donatello on display in our showroom. Do you see a misty sky? A storm brewing? A swirling pool of ocean water? Regardless, you will find it will blend with almost any existing design style in your home.u
