Calacatta gold Borghini marble is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after marbles in the world, a stone of great value that exudes opulence and elegance. The stonecutters called the stone “Calacatta” in honor of the Indian city of Calcutta and the name “Borghini” is due to Paolo Borghini, owner of the quarry since 1979. Today the term “Borghini” is even a registered trademark.
Calacatta gold Borghini marble is in fact extracted from the opulent Apuan mountains in the province of Carrara and its production is very limited: a factor that makes Calacatta oro Borghini a highly sought-after and rare material.
The distinctive aspect of the Calacatta gold Borghini is the milky white background adorned with thick dark gray veins and occasional shades of dove gray and gold.
From a geological point of view, Calacatta Borghini gold is mainly calcium carbonate, like the vast majority of the marbles of the Apuan area. However, the particular variety Calacatta gold Borghini has undergone a natural recrystallization process which, in addition to giving the stone its color and its unique veins, makes this stone more resistant and durable, allowing it to be used for a wide range of applications.
