ITALIAN WHITE MARBLE

Carrara Marble- sometimes called Sicilian Marble- is the most widely used and best known of all materials chosen for carving and sculpture, and is the usual marble choice for Memorials. Quarried in the Appenine Mountaains behind the ancient town of Carrara in North West Italy, this marble has been used by the worlds greatest artists to create sculptures and buildings that have in themselves stood as a monument to its great durability.

It is generally white to blue-white in colour and is veined with darker blue/grey markings. It has very few imperfections, although as it weathers it turns grey and becomes sugary, due to surface erosion.

Finishes: All types except polishing

All materials used in the production of memorials have variations within the slab. Colour names can be misleading and are only given as a general guide.
