Fossil Black marble features 100% real fossil ammonites and orthoceras, which are prehistoric squid and nautilus fossils carbon dated 350 million years old. Ancient Greek and Roman sculptors and architects valued fossil black marble as a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste. Its extremely varied fossil designs and beautiful patterns make it a favorite decorative material.
During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the slabs 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. Finally, for some slabs, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab.
