    It looks like a Carrara Bianco. But on the higher grade of the Carrara Bianco spectrum. Like almost everything there are different grades good, better and best and price reflects that. Particularly when it comes to buying Italian marble. The Italians have been quarrying Carrara for centuries most of the quarries are generational, prices are fixed and supplier relationships have been in place for decades. This creates a very controlled product and price.

    There are 2 main grades of Carrara Bianco:

    'C' Grade, this is the premium product, not so easy to find and get hold of (hence expensive and cannot really be mass sold).

    'CD' Grade, this is a lot easier to get hold of and the represents almost all the Carrara sold in the USA it is what comes out of the mountain day in and day out, until after so many hundreds of blocks they come across a 'C' grade section.

    For 90% of people buying Carrara, they would never actually see a 'C' grade Carrara tile and without seeing it would have no comparison. The 'CD' grade which can be priced from $5-7SF it is a nice product. But when put next to the 'C' grade you can really see their is a difference. Picture attached to make the point.

    Carrara Bianco 12x12" Subway Tile 'C' Grade available online from The Builder Depot for $8.00 a Square Foot.

    Carrara Bianco 12x12" Honed $8.00 a square foot also available in Polished

    Carrara Bianco 5x5" Hexagon Polished $12.75 a square foot also available in honed
