Macael White Marble
The Macael White Marble is a natural white stone, it can have an elegant dark and thin veto, which makes this white stone even more elegant.
It undoubtedly contributes to illuminating any environment of which it forms part: stairs, corridors, large or small rooms. And the laying is usually done in high polished gloss, which undoubtedly enhances more its luminosity.
It is, together with the white Carrara marble, the most used for cemeteries, gravestones and funerary art in general, and comparing it with the Carrara (the quintessence of white marble in Italy), we can say that polished, has an even more intense shine; besides that it is much more accessible for those who seek competitive prices of white marble.
