CARRARA MARBLE SLABS
Carrara marble originates from the Tuscan town of Carrara within the province of Massa-Carrara. The town is famous for its beach resorts, but most importantly, for the world-famous Carrara marble slabs.
It is deemed by many to be the marble and granite capital of the world. The town boasts many workshops and museums dedicated to this desirable material. Carrara was the first stone producer in the world. The marble carries a rich history dating back to the Roman Empire where it was used to construct sculptures and buildings – like the Pantheon.
Carrara Marble Slabs are made from microscopically small calcium carbonate crystals, Carrara marble slabs have a crystalline structure which makes it ideal for architecture and sculptures.
Carrara marble slabs have a soft white-grey shade, shining grains and smoky grey feathery veins, which run through the stone in an irregular pattern. The different ground colours and veins of the marble in the area of Carrara make this material spectacular. If the ground colour is light, the Carrara marble appears all white with grey veins.
