The look and feel of Carrara Marble!
The Carrara Marble is generally white to blue-grey with a feathered veining pattern. The smoky grey veins running through the stone make it cloudier in colour than pure white.Having been made from tiny calcium carbonate crystals, the quality of the marble depends on its ground colour. There are mainly two types of this marble: Bianco di Carrara C (lighter ground colour) and Bianco di Carrara CD (darker ground colour). The stone tends to brighten gradually as the marble loses the water that is stored in its pores.Carrara Marble possesses a crystalline structure that gives it a rich and elegant appearance.
Carrara Marble can be applied in many areas including kitchen, bathrooms, tiles, walls, indoors and floors to add a luxurious look to your home. It is commonly used for stairs but can also be used as a kitchen top, island bench or backsplash. It is best for high high-wear or high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
