Often confused with Calacatta, or even with the connotation of Calacatta carrara together, they have notable differences. The carrara directly from Tuscany in Italy, is a type of marble with a white background and no brownish veins. It presents light and dispersed lines in black tone. As marble is a metamorphic stone originating from nature, it is normal not to follow a standard pattern, thus making each space unique and different. It is considered to be one of the most used marbles in great Italian works and sculptures that go back thousands of years. Its versatility is a great advantage for combining with any type of pattern and/or materials also of natural origin.
Abrasive treatments with repeated applications result in a shiny surface, highlights the colour and properties of the natural stone.
A honed finish is identical to the polished finish, the surface is smooth but without glare or light reflections.
Blasting silica sand against the material through an air gun and generates very small craters.
Hitting the material, with a masonry tool called a bush hammer, that generates uniformly distributed craters of different sizes over the surface of natural stone.
Brushing the slab with a range of brushes and the result is a slightly undulating surface, very soft, warm and smooth to the touch.
Rough and irregular surface with small furrows and undulations in a mate tone.
Abrasive brushes under high pressure generate a touch-sensitive and smooth surface of natural stone.
Scratched finish is applied so that the surface exhibits a texture with straight reliefs and natural colours.
Splitting stone either by hand or by machine so that the surface exhibits a natural quarry texture.
