CALACATTA GOLD BORGHINI EXTRA MARBLE KITCHEN
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The classic appeal of our Calacatta Gold Borghini Extra instantly makes this rustic-chic kitchen feel open, welcoming, and exquisite. The large, delicate veins sweep across the canvas of the island and travel all the way to the full backsplash, creating the perfect culinary work space.

First brought to us by Michelangelo, Calacatta Gold Borghini Extra is one of the most sought-after and famous pieces of marble in the world, making it a timeless work of art in itself and of precious rarity. Its distinctive look of a smooth white field, paired with warming veins of gold and coffee add class and sophistication to any application.
Borghini is the creme de la creme of marbles. It is the most exclusive, sought after type of marble in the world. One of the reasons it is so rare and highly sought after is because it is mined very infrequently. Anywhere from 1-2 blocks per week – roughly 50-60 slabs per block on average – whereas other larger quarries mine a lot more. For comparison sake, Bianco Carrara marble quarries mine 100 plus blocks of Carrara a week (all combined). Therefore, Borghini marble is a lot less common, making it very unique.
