Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Carrara and Calacatta marble?  I used to be like many of you that would use the terms interchangeably, but there are differences between the two that warrant different names.  

Most of the time, the main differentiator between the two marbles is the color.  Carrara tends to be grayer than Calacatta and has subtler veining.  Calacatta is typically very white with stark veining throughout.  

Those awesome white marble walls with huge veining  you've seen in fancy homes?  Most likely Calacatta.
