Calacatta is said to be one of the most sought after materials in the world of natural stone. This may be because of the intrinsic and uniquely white background of the stone with its bold grey and sometimes golden toned veining. It may also be that many cathedrals are adorned with this highly-valued stone in all of its pure appearance. Or, it could be attributed to the notoriety of it being one of Michelangelo’s favorite stones to carve into. This stone is popular for many reasons, but its beautiful white and bold horizontal grey lines draw many to its edges.
The intense white of this stone and the uniformity of the lines make it a popular choice for those seeking a more consistent pattern with clean and classic color.
