Carrara vs. Calacatta Marble: What is the Difference?

contemporary-living-room

Carrara or Calacatta? People often mix up these two marbles, so I decided to create an ideabook to illustrate the differences. These terms are used interchangeably because both of these Italian marbles are very similar in appearance: white with gray veining. To add to the confusion, much of Calacatta comes from Carrara, Italy. In general, Carrara tends to be grayer with softer veining, while Calacatta is whiter with bolder more dramatic veining. There are additional subtle differences and once you know what to look for, you should be able to distinguish between Carrara and Calacatta. Check out some examples on Houzz and read the full article by Debbie Snider.

Letter to Paramount Stone from a happy customer:

paramount2

To Our Valued Friends & Customers:

The following is one of the many stories from our customers that highlight what the correct selection and expert installation will do to enhance the look of your home.

Our customer wanted to verify for herself the beauty of this Blue Aroura stone that she flew out to California to approve these slabs.

She wanted to design her entire kitchen around this fabulous stone.

The shipping crate from California set unopened in our Stamford Facility until the customer was able to come down and be present for the grand opening of the crate.

As we opened the crate for her, we could immediately sense her relief and satisfaction with the stone.

She was so thrilled that she became very emotional and we were so pleased that we could be a part of this to see the joy and satisfaction in her face.

Another Satisfied Customer brought to you by Paramount Stone!
