 Pros and Cons of Indian Marble and Italian Marble

  • While the most significant advantage of marble is its aesthetic appeal, it does come with a lot of drawbacks.
  • Marble is a porous stone and is prone to stains. Chemically, it is made of calcium carbonate, a basic salt that can react with an acidic material. That’s why citrus juices can corrode the surface and make it susceptible to small pits. For this reason, granite is preferred over marble for kitchen countertops.
  • As marble is a natural stone, deeper layers of the stone could have fissures and cracks which may not be visible on the surface. As a result, the slabs you buy may sometimes come with a high percentage of wastage.
  • Marble is prone to scratches and heavy or sharp objects should not be moved on the floor.
  • Unless you have experts laying the stone, it may not be done perfectly level.
  • Over a period of time, marble can wear away and develop hairline cracks due to weight or pressure. This is more common in Italian marble. However, many people feel this adds to the charm as the stone ages.
  • Marble is more expensive than granite, vitrified, or ceramic tiles.
  • Marble Types and Colors Available in Market
  • Indian marble comes in many unique colors. Makrana marble and Rajnagar marble are available in shades ranging from pure white to grey, with distinctive patterns and grains. Andhi Marble is famed for its creamy pista green color, while Jaisalmer marble is characterized by its warm, deep yellow tones. Silky black marble is obtained from Abu. You can find Bidasar marbles in shades running from deep green to muddy brown. Lovely pink marble is obtained in Kishangarh, which sometimes has grains of grey and white running through it.

Indian marble Vs Italian Marble

Italian marble is known for its fine veins and a lustrous sheen. The most well-known varieties are the white or blue-grey marble from Carrara, the pearly shades of Bottochino, and the creamy white Pavonazzetto or Red Verona.

Difference between Indian Marble Vs Italian Marble

Cost: Indian Marble Vs Italian Marble

Marble from Italy is among the finest in the world and is accordingly priced—with the cheapest varieties starting from Rs 200 per square foot, and the more exclusive, fine stones costing even Rs 3000 for a square foot. Creamy Calacatta marble with its feathery veins and Carrara are classified as Group A. These are available only at the lower depths of quarries. They are highly-priced as they have very few fissures running through the stone. Indian marble is much more cost-effective, with the lower-end prices starting at Rs 150 per square foot.

When calculating the costs, you will also need to factor in the prices of cutting the slabs to size and laying it in your required pattern. This will come to around 100 per square foot inclusive of the fixing material. Marble inlay work requires many specialized craftsmen to do the work. Depending on how intricate the design is, costs can go up to Rs 2,500 per square foot. Finally, the marble needs to be polished with fine stones of carborundum and buffed and sealed with tin oxide. This polishing costs approximately Rs 30 per square foot.

Cleaning Tips: Indian Marble Vs Italian Marble

Marble is a stone that requires a high degree of maintenance to keep it looking good. Its porous nature makes it very prone to scratches and stains, and such imperfections show up all too well against a polished surface. Here are some maintenance tips:

Acidic substances like vinegar, lime, and tomato will stain the marble, so wipe up any spills immediately.

Use diluted organic cleaners that are environmentally friendly and do not contain any chemicals.

Seal the surface regularly with a sealant that forms a protective barrier. When water stops beading on the surface, it’s time to re-seal.

Every few years, marble should be re-polished with carborundum stone and tin oxide, to restore the surface luster.

The water used for mopping the floor should not be hard or contain any chemicals.

For sheer elegance, there’s nothing that quite matches up to marble. With its unique colors, elegant finishes, and lustrous textures, marble makes a classy statement in any space.

Sculpted out of Italian marble.

We’re shopping for natural stone for our kitchen remodel. We like marble and were told that we “have to” go with Italian marble. We’re just wondering why. What’s so great about Italian marble Is it really better than marble from other areas

A: It is true that the most famous marble in the world comes from Italy, specifically the Carrara region. This is where artists such as Michelangelo and Donatello used Calacatta and Statuario marble to create some of the world’s most treasured works of art that have withstood the test of time. Italian marble is in high demand. It’s beautiful, durable, and brings with it a reputation for luxury. For this reason, many prefer authentic Italian marble.

Italian marble is considered to be superior by many due to its purity, durability, and beautiful white color. The fact that many buildings, sculptures, and other works of art made centuries ago out of Carrara marble still exist today is considered a testament to its longevity.

Part of the reason for the purity and durability of Italian marble is the way it was formed. Marble is basically crystallized limestone. When limestone a sedimentary rock is met with high temperature and great pressure, large crystals form and bind together to create marble a metamorphic rock. The intense heat destroys most of the impurities once found in the stone. Left behind are large sections of white marble with varied colored veins running through it. The color and boldness of the veins vary with the amount and type of minerals that are present in the limestone. This naturally varies based on the location of the marble, making every marble slab completely unique.

Another reason that Italian marble is thought to be superior comes simply from the rich stone working heritage of Italy. They were the first to streamline and perfect quarrying methods still used today. The Italians have set very high standards for quality control and do everything with precision. In fact Italians are still thought of as some of the most skilled cutters and carvers in the stone world today.

Let’s look at Carrara marble, for example. Since it comes from only one quarry in the world located in Tuscany, it’s in very high demand. This makes the price of Carrara marble higher than other marble types on the market. But be aware that since this marble is rare, it is also often duplicated, without the end-users knowledge.

Sometimes slabs will be cut and tagged as Italian when they may have been quarried in countries like India,  or Vietnam, then shipped to Italy for cutting and exported to the all over World for distribution. The term Carrara marble should literally mean that the marble was quarried from Italy’s Carrara region not just that it was cut there. So when you’re shopping, be sure you ask a lot of questions to confirm that you’re actually getting what you’re paying for.
