The island - What material is it made out of? One solid piece or is there a seam? Thanks.

Hi miriamb34!

The material used on this island is a quartzite called White Macaubas with a polished finish. There are a couple options with this material. You can get it linear cut (photographed) or cross cut which has more of a swirled veining. I included a link where I purchased the material, click on it for more info.

This island is 12 feet long so we did have to seam it. The fabricators did an excellent job with the install. The seams are nearly invisible.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,
