How Calacatta Gold Marble is Formed

While all Calacatta stone makes a striking impression, Calacatta Oro stands apart as one of the finest types of marble found anywhere in the world.

As with all varieties of Calacatta, the creamy surface of the marble is formed through slow geological forces. The process happens over millions of years and occurs within the Earth’s crust, transforming limestone and minerals through extreme heat and pressure to a crystallised structure that we know as marble.

Where Calacatta Gold Marble Comes From

There’s only one place in the world where you can find Calacatta marble, and that’s quarried in the mountains of Carrara, Italy alongside its cousin, Carrara stone.

The gold veining that typifies the Oro variety is the result of mineral impurities that fill the voids left by the heat and pressure of the Earth. With Calacatta Gold, these minerals fuse to the crystallised limestone and give it its distinctive warm-coloured veins.

Calacatta Oro Gold Marble Is Extremely Rare & Sought After

As Calacatta Oro can only be found in a single source located in the Apuan mountains, it is considered amongst the rarest of marbles.

While there are similar types of marble available, Calacatta Oro is sought after for its unusually pristine white punctuated by strong gold markings.

This is something that is not replicated to this quality anywhere else in the world, making it the preferred material for many interior designers and sculptures throughout history.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Calacatta Oro Gold marble a good choice for a kitchen countertop?

Calacatta Oro is an ideal kitchen countertop material as its unusual patterning and large creamy features of white create a clean, sophisticated look.

Polished, sealed, and finished, Calacatta Gold can withstand daily use in a kitchen. It works particularly well as an island worktop giving a sense of sophistication to the kitchen, a traditionally utilitarian room of the home.

What is the difference between Calacatta Oro Gold Marble that has a polished or honed finish?

Polished Calacatta Oro is stone that has been subjected to fine-grain abrasion. After several passes and sealing with resin, this creates a highly reflective, smooth, polished surface that creates a powerful visual impression.

Honed Calacatta Gold is marble that has not been subjected to this polishing process. Instead, it features a more matte, natural look that some owners prefer. It is also more suitable for high-demand spaces where the marble is likely to become scuffed or scratched. As it is not as reflective, light will not highlight scratches and marks as easily.

Is Calacatta Borghini the same as Calacatta Oro Gold Marble?

While both Borghini and Oro come from the same geology, they differ in their colouring and vein patterning.

Unlike Oro, Borghini features light, soft feathers of grey as well as streaks of gold. For some design schemes the neutral grey tones can help accentuate furniture and decor, while retaining a sense of luxury.

In other use cases, Calacatta Oro is ideal for decadence and stronger contrast.
