Carrara is notable for its density and its grey veining. The quality of the stone is judged on the whiteness of the background and the definition of the veining. Italian white Carrara marble is graded at the quarry as either C or CD, where C has the whiter background and the CD is slightly greyer. So in other words the whiter the background of the stone then the higher the quality.
There are many varieties of Italian white marble that come from the Carrara region of Italy but the three most popular are Carrara, Statuario White and Calacata, all which are graded differently for the whiteness of the marble background and the movements of the veins.
