What is white Marble?
A good place that most of our home remodeling clients start is removing old countertops and replacing them with something a bit more modern and visually pleasing. The common question that comes are, “What is marble?”, “Where does it come from?”, “How much does it cost?” and “How can it be used?”
Marble is natural rock/stone that is created by the earth. Because it is natural its colors, patterns and veining will never be the same – adding to its uniqueness. Marble normally comes from 4 places around the world Italy, China, Spain and India.
- Statuario – found in Italy and ideal for countertops and tile
- White Himalaya -found in Greece and is similar to Carrara marble. White Himalaya can contain strokes of purple, brown and grey.
- Mystery White – mined in Namibia. It is pure white marble. Light to no contrast in the veining.
- Calacatta – found in Italy and one of the most popular types of marble used in homes. Countertops tile, bathroom and accent walls take a unique look with the variance in grey cracked patterns and veining.
- Carrara – found in Italy and similar to calacatta marble. Its official name is Bianco Carrara. What makes it different is that the veins are thin and feathery. The contrast in patterns make it popular for use backsplashes, fireplaces and bathroom walls.
Statuario is the most popular and most precious type of marble found in Italy. It has distinctive veining that can range from gold to gray. This type of marble is considered to be one of the major white marbles. Statuario marble contains heavy, bold gray veining mixed with thinner patterns. The uniqueness in pattern draws out it appeal and overall final finish.
Calacatta Marble is one such marble – a gorgeous, high-end natural stone desirable for its distinctive look and precious rarity for a range of applications. It has a distinctive look with its thick, bold veining. Rather than the plentiful soft veins of a marble like Carrara, Calacatta’s hallmark is fewer but more dramatic and unstructured veins. Overall the color has a global appeal with designers and architects due to its soothing white background, veining, and color tone. (The whiter the background, the more expensive and desirable these marbles get.)
