Ever wondered what makes the Italian white marble one of the most coveted natural creations? Well, we all know it is the beauty, durability and a reputation for luxury. But a huge part of the reason for the purity and durability of white Italian marble is the way it was formed. Without getting into the scientific specification, let’s just say that the environmental and geographical conditions in Italy favour the final creation.
Take for instance the white Statuario marble. It is one of the most favourite natural stones of The Quarry curators. Very few materials can compete with the transparent sheen and incredibly compact structure of this white marble stone. It is further enhanced with the contribution of many Italian artists from all times who have created real masterpieces. Think for example of the “Grazie” and to “Amore e Psiche” by Canova without forgetting Michelangelo’s David, entirely carved in a single block of the white Statuario marble.
Today, white marble stone is used to express luxury and magnificence especially for roofing and furnishing elements such as fireplaces, sculptures and innovative design. Thanks to its prestige and popularity Statuario is highly demanded. The low availability of this marble makes it more of a rare find. Which is why it is critical to find an Italian Statuario Marble supplier who truly offers the best white marble that there is.
Statuario marble is a more exclusive stone with distinct grey and gold veining throughout and a striking, bold pattern. This marble is considered to be one of the major white marble and granite. Any white Statuario marble contains heavy, bold grey veining mixed with thinner patterns. Though for an untrained eye it will be difficult to spot the difference.
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. What sets them apart is the base colour. The original Statuario marble is bright white – a defining trait and rare feature. It also makes it one of the pricier and more sought-after marbles available on the market.
It’s a good thing you don’t have to travel too far to find an Italian Statuario Marble supplier or overbid for a poor quality slab. The Quarry Gallery in Mumbai probably has the widest range of some of the world’s best white marble. And Statuario is certainly one of them.
