There’s More to Marble than Just White

There’s More to Marble than Just White

March 26, 2015

When you think about marble, it’s highly likely that visions of milky white Calacatta or Carrara marble come to mind. The combination of pure white with subtle grey veining found in these two marble varieties offers a classic look that’s represented elegance for centuries. While the allure of these stunning materials cannot be denied, there’s more to marble than just white.

Marble comes in some pretty interesting shades. From the soft green waves found in Calacatta Caldia to the warm ruby hints of Rosso Levanto, marble can be found in subtle shades of nearly every color of the rainbow. What makes natural stone like marble so special is that no two slabs—even those from the same quarry—are exactly alike.

We love the softness of the classic Calacatta and Carrara marbles. But if you’re looking for something a little more unusual, consider one of these marble selections:
