Silestone Calacatta Gold is a reinterpretation of the popular Calacatta Oro marble from Italy made out of quartz which is easy to maintain and does not require sealing. It is strong, beautiful and it requires very little maintenance.
Silestone Calacatta Gold from the Eternal Collection is a quartz stone with unique mechanical performance. It balances its dominant white colour with the natural suggestion of the grey and golden vein.
The careful construction of these patterns is offset with multiple shades of grey, giving it a classic, pure appearance. It will suit both traditional and contemporary environments and architectural designs.
Another advantage of Silestone Calacatta Gold is its outstanding mechanical properties. Some of these properties include extreme hardness, resistance to both impact and scratching. It also has very low water absorption.
Coupled with its unique anti-bacterial properties, it is ideal in areas in which cleanliness comes second to no other requirement. Further to the technical characteristics, Silestone is certified for use in food preparation, healthcare facilities, laboratories, universities and schools.
Silestone is available in Suede finish; tactile texture surface is also adaptable to more traditional and/or industrial settings and features. Also, the Volcano Finish has a heavy texture that suits contemporary, traditional and industrial spaces.

Silestone quartz surfaces can be used in any area of interiors, including kitchens and bathroom. Also, these materials can be used in applications that include fireplace surrounds, floors, walls and furniture flooring. Quartz cannot be used externally since it may discolour when exposed to UV rays for long periods. Similarly, although quartz is highly heat resistant, it is recommended to use a trivet for placing items from the oven on to the surfaces.
