ALABAMA WHITE MARBLE: DECLINE TO DECADENCE
Alabama White marble is more than one hundred years old and is featured in countless paradigms of American architecture and culture including the United States Supreme Court, the Lincoln Memorial and the bust of Abraham Lincoln in the United States capital. Our quarry and the surrounding areas have been mined for more than a century as well but predominately, over the course of the last 20 years, for gravel and calcium carbonate bi-products. Alabama White marble as a dimension stone was bordering on extinction and the dimension stone industry seemed poised to extinguish one of the brightest and most elegant white marbles in the world. The domestic market simply could not serve the demand for the material; demand started decline. AM3, Jiale Stone, and TBGS Holdings stepped in to resurrect this endangered architectural treasure before it is too late. We will utilize the most technologically advanced extraction procedures, inventory control, and mining consultants coupled with the sterling reputation of this marble to revitalize a significant dormant market in the United States and reintroduce Alabama White to the world. Our quarry is situated on one of the largest white marble veins in the world and boasts significant deposits that should last in excess of 100 years with sustainable extraction rates. The US based quarry management team possesses more than 100 years of experience in the natural stone industry and significant trade partners in Europe and Asia.
Our material can be characterized in many different ways as there are several defining colors that will be extracted from different parts of the quarry. There is, of course, the traditional Alabama White material throughout the natural geology of the quarry, but there are also beautiful and unique portions of the deposit that possess grey undertones and light to heavy veining. Our geologists also advise the team that significant portions of the active mine will produce pink and in some cases green material.
Another important characteristic of Alabama White marble and its progeny is the strength of the material. Although the team plans to submit for an updated ASTM testing composite, we remain confident that the existing data (and the test of time) prove that our material is one of the most durable white marbles on the market. Alabama White does not require artificial supplementation in the form of resin or fiberglass reinforcement when cutting into nominal slabs or cut to size applications. Alabama White can be utilized in any application (interior, exterior, cubic) or climate around the world.
Our quarry is an open pit mine located in Sylacauga, Alabama in the historic Gantt geological formation. Our community supports and celebrates our efforts to reinvigorate a once proud material in an ever-prideful region of the United States. We are proud to stand before the world at the China Xiamen International Stone Fair with our sister Chinese Company Jiale Stone hand-in-hand and proclaim to the world for the very first time “ALABAMA WHITE MARBLE IS BACK AND HERE TO STAY.”
