First of all, it should be pointed out that it is improper to treat pink Carrara marble as a type in its own right with its own technical characteristics. The term “pink Carrara marble” does not come from a specific variety but from a particular shade that distinguishes some blocks of Carrara marble. Experts in the stone industry, therefore, often use the name pink Carrara marble to refer to a marble extracted in the quarries of the Apuan area, tending to beige or cream and characterized by veins or pink shades.
