Calacatta and Carrara are both famous natural stones from the Carrara region of Italy.

1. Differences in veins

Both of these stones mostly possess gray veins. If Calacatta stone has large, thick, strong, definitive, and less dense veins, then Carrara stone will lean towards smaller, thinner, and more complex veins.

If you put these 2 stone slabs side by side, you will definitely see that the veins of Carrara stone will be more structured and look pre-ordered than the random running veins of Calacatta marble.

Usually, Calacatta will have a pure white background, but there are also some slabs that look darker due to the uneven distribution of large gray and black veins.

As for Carrara stone, it will often be gray veins on a gray background rather than white. However, there will still be some striking white variations, these Carrara stones will be classified as high-quality batches, and they will certainly be more expensive than regular Carrara stones.
