wow, accidentally stumbled on the name Calacatta Pearl since I am hoping to do my backsplash in Calacatta Gold marble 3x6 subway. Maybe I should change my mind as to what tile now since there is a porcelain version.

The "marble" tile is a honed finish. I didn't want it too shiny.

If you can find the Marvel line I mentioned above (from Pentalonline), it's a really beautiful tile.

Will check it out.
Did. Like it. Don't know price point and if accessible in midwest state. Have you worked w/this tile? Is it porcelain - color all the way thru-rectified? I sent questions thru website. Thnx.

@yelda - I'm sorry I don't have the color information available. We used a Custom Building Products color. It was selected to pull out the "tan" colors in the marble tile.

The "marble" tile is from a company called Pental Marble and Granite here in Portland, OR. I'm not sure of the manufacturer. Many of the tile showrooms are carrying great look-alikes these days. Look for one in your area - I'm sure you'll find something that looks just as good.

I love the look of calacatta gold, but know marble is too delicate for kitchen countertop. Is there a quartzite or other durable material that may have a similar look?? I'm in Palm beach County, FL. Willing to travel one county north or south to search. Thank you.

These are by a company called Mico Designs. My client was looking for something with traditional aesthetic, but that wouldn't break the bank.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Calacatta marble that makes this wall so stunning has streaks of brownish gold in it. In an homage to practicality, the designer paired it with white tile around the fixtures. The tile will keep this shower looking brand new for years and the brownish-gold grout color makes the tile look like an aesthetic choice instead of a practical one.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 7 Tile Tips for Baths on a Budget
5. Make a decorative statement. A unique tile design that really stands out can define a bathroom. I love this treatment; white subway tile in this case is the decorative element rather than the field tile.
Calacatta Gold: This is a variation of Calacatta with gold mixed in. It works well with both cool and warm tones. There are many types of Calacatta.
