Italian Marble has always been known as an expensive rock, only available to the rich and wealthy. Historically, it was a highly preferred and desired material by the Greeks and Romans for both sculpting and creating architectural marvels. It eventually became a symbol of culture, tradition, and royalty.

Marble comes in different colors, patterns, and types, thus making it a popular decorative material among the masses. It happens to be the top choice of anyone wanting to renovate his or her interior or even exterior. It adds a touch of both class and elegance to the aesthetics of any space.

However, marble comes in numerous types and it is impossible to know which one is which. The types vary depending on the marble’s location, impurities, pattern, color and veining intensity. The price of each marble type also fluctuates significantly because of these factors.

Below, we have carefully curated a comprehensive guide with all the most popular marble types which are sought-after by homeowners everywhere. You’re welcome!

  • Calacatta Marble: Starting with the most popular of them all, Calcutta marble is considered the most luxurious marble type primarily because of its rarity. This rock is frequently mistaken for the Carrara marble owing to the striking similarities in the color and veining of these two types of marbles it is even quarried from the same area in Italy as the Carrara marble. However, there are a few distinct differences that can help set the two types of marbles apart. For example, Calcutta marble is known to have a dark and thick veining pattern and is of bright white color. Carrara, on the contrary, is also white in color but has an intricate grey veining pattern. Calcutta marble is at the top of the marble hierarchy because of its rarity.
