Coming from the province of Carrara in the northernmost tip of modern Tuscany, Italy, Carrara marble is a natural stone with a more than 2000-year history since its extraction began in the breathtaking Apennine mountains located in the northwest of Italy. The Apennine Mountains’ proximity to the sea makes it an ideal site for manufacturing some of the world’s top grade marble.

There are more than 650 quarry sites close to Carrara, and these have produced more marble than any other location on earth. Because of its superior tensile strength, capacity to survive a high gloss polish, and ability to retain extremely fine detail, the pure white statuario grade was employed for enormous sculpture.

This two-type grading system includes White Carrara, Bianco Venatino, and Statuarietto, while more expensive higher grade exotic variants like Calacatta Gold, Calacatta Borghini, Calacatta Macchia Vecchia, Arabescato Cervaiole, and Arabescato Vagli are quarried across the Carrara region. It is also important to mention Bardiglio Carrara because of its widespread use in construction floors and facades due to its higher black content.
Our business corporates with the most accredited quarries to bring you some of the best Carrara Marbles to use in your projects.

The combination of decades of experience and some of the most cutting-edge and accurate technologies in the world are used across all stages, from finding the marble veins to quarrying the blocks, to manufacturing procedures in the workshop, that result in final products with the finest finishing details in a relative to their production excellent value for money.

Any property that uses Carrara marble inevitably rises its commercial value. This is because of its elegance, modernity, and distinctive character, which can upscale any space from monotonous to sophisticated with style and class.
Along with increasing home value, Carrara marble is also surprisingly low-maintenance and only needs periodic resealing. There are many marble maintenance suggestions available, but as long as you always remember that marble is a natural substance that may react to acids, foods, or drinks and treat accordingly, everything should be OK.

Carrara marble is extremely durable and will last at least as long as the building it is added to. Alternative materials like ceramic and porcelain could need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years as new looks and better versions of synthetic products is consntantly added to the market. Every piece of Carrara marble is original because of the stone’s organic origins and emerging process; slabs cut from the same block may present the same pattern but  will still have slight differences in colouration and veining from one another, making every slab and block unique. You are almost given the impression of owning a unique work of natural art.

Statuario has  gone out by the late 20th century, and the significant amount of stone still being produced is now of a greyish tone and may have black or grey spots on white. The stunning white is still the base of this marble, which is still beautiful when used as a face for buildings or as tiles.

A grading system is used to distinguish between the many hues of Bianco Carrara or White Carrara marble; the two primary categories are C and CD. In contrast to CD grade marble, which has a more darkly veined background color and lighter veining, grade C marble has a pale background hue. Owing to its white coloring, C grade marble is more expensive than CD grade marble, the latter being the preferred choice for projects that call for a more affordable material.

You can be assured that when you select a marble from Carrara, you are acquiring a highly demanded and particularly valuable item which is undeniably exclusive and belongs to one else but you.

Did you know?

Italy’s quarrying practices have greatly improved in the last 15 to 20 years in terms of environmental impact. Today, domestic quarries must comply to strict rules and regulations and are under intense governmental control. With these strict regulatory come new green manufacturing practices, including the establishment of 100% recycled water systems required all through the cutting operation as well as a reduced use of energy thanks to advanced technologies. Along with adopting more environmentally friendly procedures, numerous former quarries have been transformed into parks, green lands, lakes, and recreational facilities.

Since marble is completely recyclable, fabricators now employ the production waste for other constructions like roadbeds. Current cutting-edge research demonstrates a novel way to use marble dust in cement to boost the durability and toughness of the cement; if this technique is successful, marble might turn into a zero waste product. It must be mentioned that other typical materials for kitchen countertops, including quartz and ceramic, call for the usage of elastomers and other synthetic chemical materials or that involve less environmentally friendly production methods.

When you choose marble you choose to be friends with nature.
