Calacatta Gold marble is mined from quarries in Carrara in the region of Tuscany in Central Italy and boasts a brilliant white base with prominent gold and silver veins. The distinctive pattern of the marble characterises Calacatta as the most desirable material in the natural stone universe.
In previous centuries, some cultures placed great importance on mother of pearl, sometimes more than pearls themselves. In ancient Egypt, mother of pearl was used to embellish silver pieces. Mother of pearl was also immensely popular in China during the Shang and Ming Dynasties. Finally, in the Americas, Native American tribes regularly traded mother of pearl and used it to create beads and jewelry.
Herringbone / Chevron is the first known parquet pattern, tracing back to the Roman Empire in 500 BC, with the design principle inspired by the skeleton of a herring fish.
