Our Emperador Dark marble has a dark to medium brown ground color with cobweb-like patterns of golden intersecting veins. These veins create a subtle three-dimensional texture, which gives the stone an intriguing depth in its appearance. Depending on the amount of gold veins, we distinguish between the Emperador Dark (Dark Selection) and the Emperador Dark (Gold Selection), while the former has a dark brown appearance and the latter being more golden due to a wide cascade of gold veins. Furthermore, the typical white calcite inclusions and circular patterns, as present in other comparable materials, are either absent or negligible in our stone. Therefore, our Emperador Dark has a robust material structure, providing an outstanding quality both in its appearance and in its processability.
The hardness of our Emperador Dark is typically between 3 and 3.5 on the Mohs Scale. It has many favourable natural characteristics, such as a very good polishability, that makes it a perfect stone for indoor usage.

We cut the raw blocks to slabs via our state-of-the-art gangsaw and polish the slabs to a radiant shine by employing an advanced polishing line. We apply three varieties of surface treatments for our slabs, honing, brushing and polishing. For indoor usage, we prefer and suggest polishing and for outdoor usage the stone is at its best when brushed. Furthermore, we can cut the slabs to any tile size as per customer requirements via our cutting-edge bridge saw machines.
