Calacatta marble has been the material of choice for many artists and designers for centuries. To this day, it is one of the most sought-after natural stones due to its unparallel elegance and timeless look.
When researching Calacatta Marbles for a project, it is important to know that there are different types available, each with its own unique characteristics. In this blog, we will explore the origins, characteristics, and uses of Calacatta Borghini.


The Borghini Quarry

All Calacatta Borghini slabs come from the Borghini quarry in the Apuan Alps in Carrara Italy. The Borghini quarry has been in operation since the 19th century and is known for producing high-quality, premium-grade marble.

Gold + White

Borghini Marbles are known for their white or ivory base color and dramatic veining in shades of grey and gold. The veins can come in all shapes and sizes; from bold and wide patterns to delicate and subtle ones. As you already know, no two slabs of marble are exactly alike, and this applied as well to all Calacatta Borghini slabs.

Warm Spaces

Calacatta Borghini is a very versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications. It is most popular for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities, but it also works great in fireplace surrounds, floors, and wall claddings. Its tinges of honey bring warmth and balance to any space within a home.

Care + Maintenance

Like all marbles, Borghinis require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best. Remember to seal your marble countertops regularly to prevent staining or etching. If a spill happens, clean it immediately to avoid permanent damage. And most importantly, only use soapy water to clean them to help the marble preserve its natural beauty.

Borghini Marble is a true Italian work of art that adds a touch of luxury and elegance to any space. Its unique veining patterns and durability make it a popular choice for high-end interior design projects. Whether you're looking to update your kitchen countertops or add a statement piece to your living room, Calacatta Borghini Marble is sure to impress.
