All about White Carrara Marble
As its name implies, white Carrara marble is white, but it can also appear blue-gray in color because of the veins that run through the marble. The name comes from a city in the Tuscany region of Italy called Carrara where it is quarried.
White Carrara marble has been used since Roman times as a preferred natural stone for its beauty. The marble was commonly used for numerous structures throughout the Roman Empire. Many famous buildings made with this type of marble include the Pantheon and Trajan’s Column. The material has also been used for well-known statues like Michelangelo’s David. Since ancient Rome, other famous buildings around the world have incorporated White Carrara marble. These include Marble Arch in London, the Manila Cathedral in the Philippines, Harvard Medical School in Boston, the Oslo Opera House in Norway and the Peace Monument in Washington, D.C. just to name a few.
