What is the difference between Carrara Marble and Emperador Marble?
Carrara marble is quarried from Northern Italy, and is a white marble with fine grey feathering and veining as the most distinguishable features. Veins can vary from light to dark grey, and may cover a small area or the entirety of any marble piece.
As a natural product, surface appearance and patterns will vary from piece to piece and we cannot guarantee any particular surface pattern.
Small pores and surface irregularities may be present in Carrara marble, and are not seen as defects, but rather an indicator of a high-quality, genuine marble product. These unique features are what marks marble as a luxury product.
Emperador marble is quarried from Spain, and is a rich, brown coloured marble with abundant light veining and commonly features calcite, which appears as white banding. Veins can vary from very fine and delicate to more significant and the quantity of calcite within any piece of Emperador marble can also vary.
Natural ‘voids’ and surface irregularities may be present in Emperador marble, and are not seen as defects, but rather an indicator of a high-quality, genuine marble product.
