With the demand for white marble still at a high, Brazilian stone producer DaPaz is confident its new marble San Pellegrino will soon gain recognition in the U.S. market. Located in in the State of Ceará, the northeastern part of Brazil, the material consists of white and gray tones with a smooth movement.
“The quarry is relatively new,” said Fernando DaPaz. “We started researching the area in 2016 when we found some stone pieces that were super sparkling. We kept referring to this research as the ‘sparkling marble’ and when we won the concession by the government, we decided to name the material after the sparkling water, San Pellegrino.”
