When it comes to marble, have two options that are immensely popular in Indian homes. Both Indian marble and Italian marble are amazing choices for your flooring or surface top needs. But how do you pick the right marble that’s perfect for your home and budget?

While there’s a lot of info and it’s easy to get overwhelmed, here are the basic differences you need to know between Indian and Italian marble.

Let’s discuss the options

Indian marble is quarried extensively in North India. This makes it a cost-effective choice with a wide variety of colors and textures.

On the other hand, Italian marble is quarried in Italy and is now easily available in India as well. It is widely appreciated for its high luster and imparting visual appeal to the area where it’s used.

Popular Types of Indian and Italian Marbles

Indian marble: It comes in an astonishing array of colors such as white, pink, yellow, green, red and black. Some of the popular varieties include

  • Lustrous white Makrana marble (famously used in the Taj Mahal)
  • High-quality white Ambaji marble from Gujarat
  • The widely exported Indian green marble
  • Onyx marble which gets its name from the thick bands of alternating color

 

Italian marble: Like its Indian counterpart, this comes in a variety of color and textures. Though there are a few varieties which are instantly recognizable, such as:

  • The much valued Statuario marble which is characterized by its white color shot with grey or gold veins
  • Golden hued Bottochino marble which seems to be lit from within
  • Light grey Carrara marble which features dispersed, fine, feathery veining

PRICING

Indian marble: While the cost of marble varies from city to city and vendor to vendor, Indian marble starts from as low as ₹30 per sq ft for some varieties of Indian green marble. It goes up to ₹150 per sq ft for other varieties.

Italian marble: Since this is available in a wide variety, prices could range from ₹150 to ₹5,00 per sq ft, and sometimes more.

Laying Cost

The cost of laying both Indian and Italian marble are almost the double in Italian marble which is between ₹25 Indian marble and 50 for Italian marble- per sq ft. Laying marble involves creating a base of cement and river sand before placing the marble slabs and therefore is labour-intensive.
