It does after all adorn the walls of the Vatican.

Out of stock on the polished 3×6″ for all of 2015 and 2×12″ polished.  This is not because we could not buy Calacatta Gold, on the contrary we have refused almost 40 containers simply based on the quality and then what met with quality in early summer did not meet the price point we wanted for our customers.  But it looks like we are on a roll (literally the tile moves along these rollers).
