Half and Half

Half and Half

An example of our newest style marble called the "Half & Half". As the name implies, this style is created by evenly dividing the pattern between the three color bands and lines. When turned into a marble the color bands cross to create secondary color combinations that did not exist in the original layout. The lines also cross to create wonderful moiré patterns. The color changing effect of this style is particularly pronounced in hand.

Burgundy Plaid

Burgundy Plaid

A 12 cane 2 pattern example of our signature "Plaidicino" style marble. The "Plaidicino" originated from our attempts to replicate the complex woven patterns of traditional fabrics.

Due to the time consuming and difficult nature of creating this style, they are created on a very limited basis and are prized by collectors. Sizes range from 2 1/2 to nearly 3 inches.
