“Hard Times Hit Italy’s Carrara Marble Finishers”

Carrara. You know I love it.

It is one of the most reasonably priced marbles out there, thanks to a little town name Carrara in Italy that has made chopping this rock from the earth its livelihood. Check out this article to read about the hard hit Carrara is taking as India and China gain market ground in the finished marble business.

I recently read a post on the GardenWeb asking about Carrara from China. Seems like the slabs are exported for polishing to China at a cheaper cost. That, in addition to the abundance of Carrara, may explain it’s lower price. Anyone have any Carrara thoughts?

Viva Italia!
