It may surprise you that marble is typically formed out of limestone or dolomite rock, both of which are common types of sedimentary rocks. The rocks are then metamorphosed under heat and pressure when the earth’s crust moves, resulting in a re-crystallized and hard marble stone. Depending on the chemical composition of the original sedimentary rock, and the conditions under which it metamorphoses, the marble can take a variety of appearances, though nearly always with distinctive wavy veins running through it.
Marble can be categorized in a number of ways, and knowing the differences will help you make informed decisions.
ITALIAN STATUARIO MARBLE:
This is a white marble extracted in Italy, together with other major white marble such as the Carrara White. Italy has a strong history in terms of white marble extraction and the Statuario gained a strong reputation in the past decades. It is today a type of marble that has very limited availability, but a considerable demand. It is then a very exclusive and expensive type of marble, which is mostly used on 5-star hotels, small private luxurious projects and applications with high budget. This is a type of marble not affordable for all, being mostly used on smaller exclusive projects.
Statuario marble contains the same white and grey hues found in Carrara, with grey veining similar to that which you’ll find in Calacatta slabs. This marble is a very bright white in color, and it is relatively rare. This makes it one of the pricier and more sought-after marbles available on the market. While Statuario is revered in Italy for being the perfect marble for carving statues, it is also an ideal material for residential and commercial projects. Given its rarity, it is not surprising that Statuario marble is often used as a focal point in any room in which it is featured.
Like its Calacatta counterpart, this beautiful white marble variety works well in a large tile format, as well as in the form of countertop slabs or book-matched backsplashes or wall panels.

This classic white or light gray stone with soft gray veins is one of the lightest colored marbles used for flooring tiles. It is quarried in the city of Carrara in the northern tip of Tuscany, Italy. With hundreds of operating quarries producing it, Carrara marble is one of the most readily available marbles you can choose. By some accounts, more than 80% of all marble used in residential construction up to now is Carrara marble. Supplies of Carrara marble are dwindling, however, and you can expect other different sources of marble to come into heavier use in the coming years.
Calacatta marble is a whitish marble with very pronounced veins ranging from gray to golden brown. Originating in the Apuan Mountains in Carrara, Italy, it is a high-end luxury stone that is used both in countertop slabs and flooring tiles. It is available in both honed and polished finishes. Calacatta is quite similar to Carrara marble, but with more prominent veining. This is a rare and more expensive form of marble.

This stone is especially good for Exterior – Interior wall and floor applications, monuments, countertops, mosaic, fountains, pool, and other design projects.

Crema Marfil Marble
Crema Marfil marble is a textured creamy beige stone with soft veins of color including tones of yellow, cinnamon, white, and even goldish beige. Crema Marfil marble is a natural stone and, as such, nature herself gave it form, thus there are no two pieces of Crema Marfil that are exactly the same. This quality represents a great advantage for the architect who wished to create exclusive ambiances.
Because of the Crema Marfil tonalities, it is a type of marble that forms perfect combinations with the other construction materials and, in turn, is a grand ally in any decoration type.

Finishes in Marble Tiles Used
Marble tile can be finished with any one of several different surface styles. The most popular marble finishes are polished, honed, tumbled, and brushed.
In lighter-colored marbles, polished tiles will actually glow, with the light of the room penetrating slightly into the stone and then reflecting outward with soft illumination.
Honed marble may be more muted and often does not have the same vibrancy of color as a highly polished stone. The finish also still has a relatively low coefficient of friction (which means it’s still somewhat slippery), and it can be scratched if not cared for properly.
Each piece of tumbled marble is slightly different. Though the tiles are fairly standard in size, the shapes will vary slightly, and not every piece will be a perfect right-angled square or consistently textured. This irregularity is part of the appeal of using honed materials.
- Bush hammered
The brushing process, however, creates a somewhat porous surface that must be frequently sealed in order to resist staining. The floor needs to be cleaned frequently because dust tends to collect in the textured pits of the surface.
