Calacatta Range originally comes from Carrara, Italy. The characteristic feature of this Italian marble is the dramatic grey or dark grey veining on a white background creating a grey white pattern.
The unidirectional veining and the tonality variation in the whiteness of the background is the reason why it is being claimed, “…Each Calacatta block has its own DNA and its own history...”
Designers from all over the world select this luxurious material mostly for interior applications, especially for lobbies and bathroom wall claddings.
