CALACATTA MACCHIA VECCHIA: THE ITALIAN MARBLE THAT DEFINES LUXURY

Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble (Calacatta Old Stain, tranlating from Italian) is synonymous with elegance and prestige in the world of design. This Italian marble, quarried from the renowned Carrara quarries, is famous for its exceptional beauty and uniqueness. With a homogeneous white background and gray-gold veins with brown and hazelnut hues that intertwine in spider web patterns, it is a material that does not go unnoticed.

At Pistore Marmi, we have used this magnificent natural stone for the realization of several design projects, in collaboration with architects and designers, and we want to share with you the characteristics and ways of using this marble, a symbol of elegance, prestige and luxury.

Calacatta Macchia Vecchia, characteristics

This fine natural stone is distinguished by its bold and harmonious veining. Warm tones of gray and gold with softly shaded veins from light yellow to brown, sometimes tending to green and purple, run through its light background, making it extremely refined and valuable. Its peculiarity and rarity make it an exclusive material, suitable for those seeking a touch of luxury and distinction for their interiors.

This marble is particularly suited to the book matched laying technique, which enhances its veining creating unique patterns. This technique not only enhances the intrinsic beauty of marble, but also transforms any surface into a work of art.

MAINTENANCE OF CALACATTA MACCHIA VECCHIA

In addition to its extraordinary beauty, Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble is also prized for its durability and strength. However, because it is a porous natural stone, it requires some care in maintenance.

For routine maintenance of marble, use a clean damp cloth well wrung out and dry immediately. Protect the surface from aggressive events, intense heat and acidic products (wine, coffee, lemon, vinegar and similar). Absolutely avoid abrasive products. Marble by its nature has poor resistance to acidic substances that can corrode its surface by penetrating into the pores creating stains. Therefore in the case of acidic substances spilled on the surface dry immediately.
