Why to Choose Statuario Marble Most precious Natural Stone from the heart of Italy

Since ages, marble has been used in architectural designs and is priced for its beauty and many types as it delivers a one-of-a-kind classic look that can be adapted to any décor.

One such extraordinary marble, said to be the finest of all in the world, is Statuario Marble. The mountain quarries of Statuario marble are located above Carrara in Italy and has limited availability and high demand. The low availability of this marble makes it more of a rare find.

Extracted in the Carrara area, the Statuario white marble has a bright white background crossed by medium-wide gray veins. Thanks to its unique aesthetic properties, it lifts up the face of any interior project.
