Calacatta Marble is arguably the most prestigious, and therefore most sought after, marble on earth. The exact reason for this is hard to put your finger. However, a glance at this material starts to give you a clue or two.
Let’s start with the white background color. Over the course of centuries, white marbles of all varieties have been favored for use in statuary, flooring, wall covering and more. The Taj Mahal and the Lincoln Memorial spring quickly to mind in terms of architectural achievement. The point is that white marble has always been, and will always be, in fashion.
The next thing to think about in considering the popularity of Calacatta is veining. As a general rule, Calacatta will be more strongly veined than its cousin Carrara. That will naturally indicate greater movement throughout any space it is utilized in.
