All classic white Italian marble comes from the Carrara region, located on the coast of Northern Tuscany, where the Apuane Alps run along the sea. White marble has been quarried in these peaks since the time of the Roman Empire. There are many quarries in this area but the three main types are Bianco Carrara, Statuary White, and Calacata, all of which are graded for attributes like the whiteness of the background and the color and movement of the veins—similar to the way diamonds are graded for color, clarity and cut. Like diamonds, the higher the grade of white marble, the higher the price.
