Italian Carrara Marble Inspired Quartz
Carrara is a city in Tuscany, Italy, famous for the white or blue-grey marble quarried there. Natural white marble is excellent for sculpting and building projects dating back to Ancient Rome. Many artists have chosen Carrara marble due to its purity and ability to take fine polish. Michelangelo Buonarroti, who carved his David from a block of Carrara marble, described it as “the stone of heaven.”
Carrara marble is still prevalent in some of the most iconic buildings and sculptures in history and continues to be a fantastic choice for architects and designers today. In like manner, the Compac Unique Carrara quartz takes inspiration from this classic material, with its unique take on the classic Carrara look.
