Calacatta Gold – ETA June 31st

 

Calacatta 3×6″ Subway Tile $11.95SF

Genuine Italian Carrara is from The Builder Depot

As an online retailer of natural stone we constantly stay on top of the market changes and conditions.  One of the things we like to do is order samples of our competitors Carrara 3×6” Subway Tile and Hexagon.  We are shocked at the number of competitors that call Turkish marble ‘Carrara’.  The marble is a white marble from Turkey that has some gray veining in it, but 98% of competitors call it ‘Carrara’ in the hope of the consumer buying the inferior stone.

How can you tell the difference?  The easiest way to tell is that Turkish white marble (we won’t call it Carrara) has ...
