this was a great read. We work quite a lot with both marble and i just would like to specify that people tend to prefer Calacatta over Carrara marble and the reason is simple: whiter background colour and very catchy veins pattern. That's why actually Calacatta Gold or normal Calacatta cost at least 4 times more than Carrara marble.

A good option in terms of price and quality half way between the above mentioned qualities is Arabescato.
