Statuario Venato White Marble

Statuario marble looks like its close relative, Calacatta, and is exclusively quarried in Italy and prized as a symbol of luxury and wealth. With its very white background and grey veins, Statuario makes a striking statement in any installation. Statuario differs with veins being more dispersed and striking than Calacatta.

Best used internally, this sought-after stone is stunning on benchtops and vanities and is one of the ultimate materials to use in tiles on walls and floors of bathrooms. Statuario is also used extensively in commercial applications on bars and reception desks or as a focal point for visitors entering a building.

Frequently Asked Questions About Statuario Venato Marble Tiles 

What is The Difference Between Carrara, Calacatta and Statuario Marble?

Carrara, Calacatta, and Statuario are all quarried in the same region of Tuscany in the Apuan Alp region. And, while all three have similar characteristics, they do differ in their composition as well as pattern and veining.

All three marbles are considered excellent materials to work with and perfect options for commercial and residential applications.  Typically, they can all be used as feature walls, benchtops and splash backs as well vanities and floors.  It is mainly the cost that separates which material will be used.

Statuario is considered the most precious of the three marble types featuring strong contrast veining that varies in colour from greys and silvers to webbed gold.  Statuario will be graded and priced on how clean the material is and how defined the veins are.

Should I Have My Statuario Marble Sealed?

While Statuario marble has been used for centuries in a variety of different applications and was never sealed in these settings, our desire to keep the stone looking pristine has bought about an industry that has developed products which will help keep your Statuario marble looking perfect for years.

Originally various oils such as linseed were coated onto the stone which helped preserve the look longer.  Our modern sealers are much finer than these oils and penetrate into the stone providing long lasting protection against stains from the normal range of household cooking products and environmental wear and tear.

Can I Use Chemical Cleaners on My Statuario Marble?

Most chemical cleaners are corrosive to marble including household products such as bleach, ammonia-based liquids, citrus cleaners, and vinegar. You will, therefore, want to use a pH-neutral chemical cleaner designed specifically for marble. Alongside a non-abrasive sponge or micro-fibre cloth, this will remove residue from your marble without damaging it. Many specialised stone cleaners are available and are used diluted in a spray bottle with water for day-to-day cleaning
