Calacatta Gold Marble - the look of the moment

The last few years have seen the development of marble-look quartz worktops with “big veins.” We have written about this since they first appeared, starting with Silestone’s breakthrough products. And if one type of big-veined marble-look quartz has become dominant, it is Calacatta Gold – based on a real and highly prized marble, with a white background, grey veins and amazing gold veins in there too.

Silestone Eternal Calacatta Gold has set the (excuse the pun) Gold Standard for this material, and everyone wants a slice of the action. In the last two or three years more and more manufacturers have created their own versions – sometimes under the name “Calacatta Gold” but also with names like Calacatta Dorato (Arenastone), Calacatta Nuvo (Çimstone), Calacatta Oro (Cullifords) and more.

We are delighted to announce that we are stocking our own AG Calacatta Gold as of this month! This is despite having written not long ago to explain why we wouldn’t stock a big-vein marble-look quartz! We have managed to source a good Calacatta Gold at the most affordable price yet, and we are putting our toes in the water and getting some stock in.

Calacatta Gold is a big-vein quartz, which means that it does raise vein-matching issues, as we dealt with in our blog some time ago. It is probably best used in a kitchen where an island or peninsula gives that big pattern a chance to really sing! But we have secured a price that will make this material great value as a worktop in any kind of kitchen – contact us for a price today!


AG Calacatta Gold will be stocked in our Premium Plus Extra price band.
