While one would think of the minor marble and the major, the truth is that they were all born the same! The limestone underwent a mutation into a crystalline marble. However, some varieties of marble are more attractive and Calacatta is one of them. Stunning, high-end natural stone has a distinguished appearance and is rare enough to be considered precious. Calacatta suits several diverse purposes.
The typical looks of Calacatta
While Carrara has many soft veins, Calacatta has some very dramatic, bold veins. The calming white background and grain pattern appeal to homeowners, designers, and architects from around the world. Greater whiteness indicates higher prices and charm. The veins also suit book-matched installations, compared to other marble patterns.
We offer 6 varieties of Calacatta. Each one is exquisite and they are called Calacatta Classic and Calacatta Gold, Calacatta Gold Premium and Calacatta Lasa, Calacatta Splendor and Calacatta Vagli. Against the white background, the veining can be gold or gray in various shades. Neutral colors can be easily combined with varieties of wood and other decorative elements. Plan color options as dramatic contrasts or subdued effects.
Being weird is always desirable
Anything that is high end is not commonly found. Higher demand results in higher prices. Calacatta marble comes to our homes and offices from a single global location in Carrara, Italy, far, far away! It may confuse some people that Carrara marble also comes from the same quarry. Calacatta marble production is scarce and regulated. The seasons also make a difference, as working in the harsh winter on top of Carrara Mountain can be challenging. Hence, the higher prices and the rarity, workmanship and reputation of Calacatta marble.
