    Some claim that Calacatta marble does resemble the "aged" look through time because of lack of maintenance. If the stone is not sealed these colors may appear.

  • Murray 07:33PM, Jun 11 2014

    Does Calacatta marble get more gold as it ages? In our bathroom, the wet areas (shower, etc) are getting holder. It was installed 6 years ago. Thanks

  • Marble.com - Jack 01:19PM, Jun 9 2014

    Calacatta slabs are roughly that size. I cannot justify how many seams there are going to be based on the dimensions you provided. Our template technician has to assess the home, entrance and justify the seams based on that.

  • Campbell7595 01:16AM, Jun 7 2014

    Does Calacatta Oro Marble come in 10' x 6' slabs? My kitchen island will be 9' 6" x 5' 8". If not, how many seams can I expect. Thanks.

    We only charge our clients for the material the use. Please send us a sketch with dimensions to sales@marble.com be sure to include your name, telephone number and zip-code of installation. Our stones come in an 1 1/4'' thickness.

    Unfortunately not, but feel free to visit our Ridgefield Park, PA, or South Plainfield locations to come take a look.

    Need an L shape countertop 58x122" with 27width. Is it available in your Farminigdale NY location?

  • Peter 02:17PM, Jul 18 2013

    Although we are not tile experts, Carrara IS a different stone than Calacatta Gold. This particular Calacatta Gold is in slab form, it is not a tile. The difference in the two that you mentioned would be that one is a tile and the other is a marble slab.

  • cubed 08:35AM, Jul 18 2013

    How is Devonshire Carrara Satin tile different from Calcutta Gold? Can Devonshire Carrara Satin be used in a kitchen/foyer? Is it too

    informal ? I need an urgent answer?

  • Peter 08:39PM, Jun 10 2013

    I'm sorry but we do not ship out slabs

  • Marble.com - Adrian 04:28PM, Mar 25 2013

    Hi, Calacatta stone is really soft so I would recommend you to seal it every six months also after the installation.
    One of the strongest stone protectors on the market that I
    recommend is the DuPont StoneTech Bulletproof Sealer:
    http://www.mrstone.com/granite...
    and you should watch the following video to learn the steps
    on how to seal your granite properly and efficiently:
    http://www.marble.com/video/gr...
    I also strongly recommend to purchase and use the AGM
    Natural Granite Cleaner for the countertop cleaning &
    maintenance purposes:

    Good luck !

    I have a marble counter top in my kitchen "Calacatta " I love the look - but how can I clean it so the water mark will not show-

  • Marble.com - Walter 06:42PM, Feb 25 2013

     You could consider using one of the light quartzites. These look similar to marble (albeit with visible crystalline structure), and are very resistant to etching and scratching (since they're almost pure quartz). The slight issue is chipping (again, because of the crystalline structure), but in the grand scheme of things, quartzite is still a lot easier to live with than marble. You can check them out here:  http://www.marble.com/material...

  • Mary 05:56PM, Feb 25 2013

    I love to use Calacatta Gold in my kitchen and bathroom.  But I am worry for the stain and all the wear-down issues. What should I do?  Use it or go with the natural granite?  Thanks.

  • Marble.com - Derek 03:19PM, Sep 27 2012

    You can use marble if you want, but just be prepared for a certain degree of wear-down that the countertops will shown over time such as etches, stains, and chips. Unless you will rarely use the kitchen for cooking and are very careful. In addition, you can help minimize these issues by choosing a honed surface finish and sealing the stone every six months wit a strong, professional sealer. Marble such as Calacatta Gold is very unique-looking and you will not find any granite like it. Stronger stones that look similar to marble and are popular for kitchen countertops are colors such as Classic White and White Fantasy. Hope this helps!

  • Lizpensiero 10:07PM, Sep 26 2012

    I am looking to Calacatta GOld (mostly taupe veining) in my kitchen, but of course everyone says "Marble isn't good for a kitchen!" Help! It's the look I want with dark cherry cabinets and very light blue/gray walls. Any suggestions

  • Marble.com - Natalia 03:11PM, Jun 26 2012

    You would have to keep the Calcatta marble sealed to keep it stain resistant. Marble has been used in showers for hundreds of years with great success.

  • colin mantripp 05:57PM, Jun 20 2012

    i am wanting to have a stool or block made for our shower, @ 40cm cube, either solid, or made up, if this will be able to withstand the heat and humidity of a shower encloiser, calcutta gold, is this possible? colin mantripp wood carver

  • Marble.com - Kinga 05:36PM, May 3 2012

    Unfortunately, we do not carry tiles. We have large, full slabs which are much thicker than tile so you may want to consider contacting a tile vendor in your area. Good luck!

  • Kcveio 04:59PM, May 2 2012

    I'm looking for 18x18 or 24x24 tiles in Calcutta gold.  I need 96 square feet.  Can you help me with this order?

  • Marble.com - Derek 08:04PM, Apr 4 2012

    Calacatta marble can surely be fabricated into a round table top to the measurements you require. Just make sure you have adequate support with the iron base as marble is softer and fragile compared to granite. For pricing on this project, please contact our sales office: www.marble.com/contact

  • Bonbonhabert1 04:27AM, Apr 1 2012

    Hi I am looking to make a rather large dining room table top..I am hoping to find either a Calcutta gold or something similar in a 75" round for an iron base. Is that even possible and what would you suggest?

  • Marble.com - Derek 01:52PM, Mar 13 2012

    Hello. For a price, you must contact our sales office with the measurements that you require for the project: www.marble.com/contact

  • Carb118 03:48PM, Jan 22 2012 How much is the going rate per sq ft for marble installation in NYC?
  • Carb118 03:47PM, Jan 22 2012 How can I tell how much marble I will need for my kitchen approx.
  • Marble.com - Derek 06:50PM, Oct 26 2011 There is no rule saying that you can't, but it's a rather soft and fragile material that is more susceptible to stains, chips, and scratches. It requires high maintenance to stay looking new and pretty. If you're up for the task, you can find out more information here: http://www.marble.com/articles...
  • Marble.com - Kinga 06:01PM, Oct 24 2011 You can use marble in a kitchen; however, it is not recommended because it can scratch, stain and chip faster than granite. Keep in mind marble will etch and develop patina over time which is a natural and expected part of using marble. Since a kitchen get a lot of usage, it’s easier to damage it as opposed to using it in a bath. As long as you properly clean and maintain it, you shouldn’t have any problems.
  • nicole 08:42PM, Oct 22 2011 why can't marble be used for kitchen countertops? or is there some marbl e that could be used?Nicole.
  • Nicole 08:40PM, Oct 22 2011 Why can't you use marble for countertops?
  • Marble.com - Kinga 02:51PM, Jul 11 2011 Jean,
    Remember, shipments of the stone will vary so it’s always best to view the slabs in person to see the beautiful features the stone has to offer.  Before any fabricator does the cutting, you should approve the slab and the layout to make sure you get exactly what you want.
  • Marble.com - Derek 01:53PM, Jul 11 2011 Well, Calacatta 'Gold' variety has golden tone in the veins and streaks. It's not fully gold, but the grey veins should have outlines of golden in them. That is high quality Calacatta slabs.
  • Jean 12:43AM, Jul 8 2011 Should I look for a yellow gold tone in Calactta gold or is it more like Carrera just white and gray? I have been told there is a big difference but looking at photos I can not see much difference.
  • Marble.com - Derek 12:57PM, Jun 10 2011 While marble such as Calacatta is a softer stone than granite and more prone to stains and chips, marble is still a popular choice for kitchen islands. It's a classic and timeless look that brings softness to any design. If you're willing to live with the high maintenance as well as the wear and tear of marble, then there is no reason why you should not use Calacatta. Hope this helps.

  • Marie 04:01PM, Mar 16 2011 Is there such a thing as Calacutta GRANITE or only marble?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:13AM, Mar 17 2011 Marie : Calacatta is a marble only.
  • Jessica 02:56PM, Jan 13 2011 I need a table top for my outdoor wrought iron base. I was considering white marble and was wondering if that was a bad choice. I am not against the look of aging but want to know what I am in store for.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:08AM, Jan 14 2011 Jessica: For outdoor application, I do not recommend marble, as it will not only age in time, but probably stain horribly even if you seal often. There is light stones similar to marble with the durability of granite that you may want to consider. For example, take a look at Kashmir White, Bianco Romano, White Fantasy, and Moon Night.

  • Liliana 11:25PM, Oct 6 2010 I have 3 big low windows. I'm planning to put marble under the window. This will also works like a bench and a shelf. What kind of marble is better: Branco Cachoeiro, Calacata gold or White Carrara? The quality between them varies a lot? What about porosity, surface regularity and price?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:40AM, Oct 8 2010 Liliana: Both Calacatta Gold and White Carrara are about the same quality of marble. Marble tends to be more porous and softer than granite. Branco Cachoeiro is a stronger, less porous stone that looks like Marble Branco Cachoeiro and White Carrara are mid-range in price, while Calacatta Gold is one of our more premium stones. For exact pricing please contact our sales office.

  • maureen 08:30PM, Feb 9 2009 Hello. I am in the process of choosing bath vanity countertops. The bathroom is a medium size with one smallish window. The vanity is 60 inches and is a medium stained cherry (reddish tint. We inherited ceramic floor tiles. They are white with a barely there pink and grey clouding; no veining. I want marble countertops, not granite. My options are limited as I am choosing from remnants. I have an option of a 3cm Calcutta Gold that looks very much like the lot here. I also have the option of a Crema Marfil. What would you recommend?
    • All Granite and Marble 05:04PM, Feb 10 2009 maureen: My choice would be the Crema Marfil. Nice, soft appearance and should compliment the red in the cherry wood much better than Calcutta Gold. Should bring some warmth to the room.
