The Story Behind the Stone – Statuario Cava 103


Equivalent to the batch number on a bottle of well aged scotch, the Statuario Cava 103 stamps the same type of exclusive richness. The “103” originates from the name of the quarry which produces this most sought after white marble. The historical quarry, Calocara 103, sits high up in a mountain and overlooks the beautiful city of Carrara, Italy.

Batch 103 is known for its stark white background and medium grain structure. The balance of its veins, coupled with its evenly distributed pattern, is what makes these set of blocks so extraordinary, proclaiming them the king of all whites! Our generational relationships allow us exclusive rights to the first selection of blocks. This is how we ensure that you will be receiving the most luxurious slabs of Statuario Cava 103.

Mosaic Vibes

It White Carrara Select - Hexagon

We’re certainly feeling the hexagon vibes lately! Lets first start by saying this is not a recent trend and instead of “jumping” on the hexagon bandwagon, we decided to drive it. This may come as a shock, but hexagon tiles never really went out of style! This uniform pattern has been around since the early 1900′s, recently gaining more and more popularity in the design world.


Our Monte Bianco Collection offers the hexagon tile in 3 sought after white marble shades: Calacatta Gold Extra, Statuario White Extra & Italian White Carrara Select.  Also available in 2 finishes: the ever popular high gloss polished & the smooth “velvety to the touch” trendy honed finish.


So simple and yet so eye catching. The hexagon pattern tends to create a dappled effect by every other tile featuring a different shade of the white marble.  Perfecting the perfect backsplash in any room.


You can let the hexagon pattern shine all on its own or pair it with your favorite tile to achieve a magical combination! Perfect for a bathroom or kitchen inspiration.

White Marble = Classic Beauty

That gorgeous classic white marble with gray veining has been used around the world for years now.  Discovered before the first century, white marble has proven that it can stand the test of time.  Some of the most beautiful and historic artwork is composed of white marble.  The Taj Mahal, the Statue of David and the Jefferson Memorial are just a few.  White is anything but boring.

White marble comes in a variety of finishes including honed, polished and tumbled and is available in both tile and slab.  It is recommended for both residential and commercial projects, including flooring, countertops, and backsplash.  It can brighten any room, creating the illusion of a larger space.  It’s a rich material that adds beauty to any space.  As you notice style fads constantly changing, a gorgeous Calacatta Gold countertop or that amazing Statuario White backsplash will always be in style.


Of course, one of the most common places to see marble is the bathroom.
