Carrara Marble


Bianco Carrara C Marble

Carrara Statuarietto Marble

Carrara Marble has been prized since ancient times. It’s quarried near the Italian town of Carrara, which is famed for producing some of the world’s most prestigious marbles, including Calacatta and Statuario.

Carrara is the most common Italian marble. It’s generally white to blue-grey with a feathered veining pattern. Carrara Marble tends to be cloudier in colour rather than pure white. The grey flecking and soft veining common to Carrara Marble creates a more subtle and subdued appearance than many other types of marble.

Carrara is generally more affordable than its more high-end Italian counterparts, like Statuario Marble & Calacatta Marble. However, it is still a high-quality and beautiful choice, especially for high-wear or high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
