Marble is a rock made of calcium carbonate that has undergone a natural recrystallization process.

Marble is formed by the transformation of other stones under the action of high temperature and strong pressure. The result of this process is that new minerals, textures and structures will produce a large number of different types of marble, as we can see in the following example.

There are various types of white marble. The uniformity of its background color, the type and thickness of the particles, and the drawing of its veins are the characteristics and uniqueness of each variety.

Calacatta white marble is a natural stone from Italy. It is calcium white marble. It has a very unique color difference, in which cracked white and very thin light gray veins are dotted with tiny amber and gold notes.
This Italian variety lasted for centuries and was the protagonist of many related architectural projects in Classical Rome, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Today, it is considered a luxurious marble that can be used to decorate the interior of large residential or hotel projects.

Bianco Carrara marble, as its name suggests, comes from the Carrara quarries in the Tosco-Emilian Apennines. Its homogeneous greyish white base is composed of fine, shiny particles. Its veins are grey in color and are distributed over the surface as capillaries. There are different classifications of Bianco Carrara, and its level of whiteness defines each group
