Carrara Marble is a metamorphic rock formed from limestone which comes from the quarries of Carrara, Italy. Similar to other natural stones, each piece of carrera marble differs from the others in colors, veining and shades. On the surface of white carrera marble, the various shades and patterns of gray veining and streaks greatly increase the value of any space decorated. Depending on the physical characteristics of the marble, carrera can be classified into different types, such as Bianco Carrara (White Carrera) or Statuary Carrara (Statuario Carrera). Specific names are given to each types of marble to distinguish this stunning marble from similar products, such as Calacatta, Dolomiti and Venato. Bianco Carrara marble was often used in architecture by the ancient Greeks and Romans, usually as exterior cladding, and was favored as a sculpting material, especially during the Renaissance. Michelangelo’s David, for example, is made of Carrera marble. Today, White Carrara marble is commonly used in home design as countertops and floor tiles due to its clean, aesthetic qualities.
