BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP”S the Most Famous and Desirable Marble on Earth
Italian marble is practically peerless in the natural stone world when it comes to its durability, purity and beauty. It’s synonymous with luxury, elegance and sophistication and is seen as a symbol of status in residential and commercial buildings around the world.
Statuario is the most precious marble varieties found in Italy. It has distinctive veining that can range from gold to gray.
Carrara marble is grayish-white with less large veins and more fine, feathery veining that often appears to be linear.
Calacatta marble is a rarer than carrara and is more white than gray with dramatic veining that results in thick, predominate patterns. It often has brown and gold undertones.

It’s the Italian origin, and the historical allure that it was Michelangelo’s favorite stone to carve out his sculptures. STATUARIO Calacatta adorns so many cathedrals, churches and castles all over the globe. Maybe it is the unique mix of white, grey and hues of gold flowing through the dramatic veining – or maybe it’s all of the above.
The truth is that STATUARIO Calacatta marble is the most sought after material in the natural stone universe. But anyone who has shopped for STATUARIO Calacatta marble knows that there are so many different types and price ranges out there.
STATUARIO Carrara tends to be muddy in color and not pure white. STATUARIO Carrara is also less expensive and more common to find in your everyday marketplace or cut into tiles. STATUARIO Calacatta on the other hand has very bold veining with a crisp white background. While each natural stone slab is unique, STATUARIO Calacatta marble is much more rare than your typical STATUARIO Carrara.

Where does Calacatta marble come from?
Calacatta marble comes from quarries found in the Apuan Mountains in Carrara, Italy. Owner of Aria Stone Gallery, Vinny Tavares, has been going to the Carrara area of Tuscany in Italy – the land of Calacatta marble – for the past 10 years. Tavares explains, “what most people don’t realize is that Calacatta marble doesn’t come from one specific mountain or quarry. There is a vast mountain range in the Carrara region in Italy, with each quarry producing a variety of white marbles such as: Bianco Carrara, Goiai, Venatino, Statuario and finally, Calacatta marble. All of these materials are white marble with more or less the same geological formation.”

What does the perfect Calacatta marble slab look like?
In order to understand Calacatta, you need to know what is not Calacatta. Just because someone calls a Statuario marble, “Calacatta” – does not mean it is a true Calacatta. But what truly differentiates all of the white marbles in the Calacatta Region – as the Italians have discovered hundreds of years ago – is the stone’s veining and how white the background is. The whiter the material, the more expensive the slabs. The more “uniform” the veining in the stone, the pricier it gets.

All three types of marble will vary from slab to slab, as no two marble formations are the same. The uniqueness of each marble slab is what can result in distinguished luxury kitchens and baths. For this reason, it is often advised that when picking out white Italian marble, one should ask the stone provider to see at least three samples in order to find the color variegation and patterning that speaks to you the most.
