New Calacatta Gold 3″ Hexagon Mosaic Arries

Calacatta Gold in currently $17.95 and Free Shipping in both Honed and Polished.

To further add to our collection of carefully selected Calacatta Gold 2018 saw the introduction of Calacatta Gold 3″ Hexagon with a Honed and Polished finish.

It fits perfectly with the look we wanted with the wide bands. Calacatta is a confusing stone, it has many, many names and many looks. The one most sought after is the wide bands of Gold and then the exceptional white base. This mosaic achieves that and matches our collection of existing Calacatta Gold

We now have a nice Collection of Calacatta Gold with trims subway tile and mosaic options to put together creating matching lots for bathrooms.

Calacatta Gold Hexagon Mosaic

Calacatta Hexagon

Incredible Lot of Calacatta Gold 2″ Hexagon Honed for $16.95 a Square Foot and Free Shipping for 2016 (or until we run out).

We seem to have finally hit the sweet spot in the quarry where it is producing just the right amount of veining and a really, really white based product. This is incredible grade of Calacatta Gold very pleased I know many companies would see this and raise the price. We’ll keep the price the same and let our customers benefit from this product in the same way we are just as happy to receive it ourselves.

This is all part of our Calacatta Gold collection with trims included here.

I love the simplicity, you can really go with honed or polished on the floor, it is the grout that provides the traction (or friction coefficient if we want to use the real name) not the stone, big misconception.  Go with what you want.

Calacatta 1x1 Hexagon MosaicOur products are always well above average excellent I would say, but occasionally you open a crate and it is just extraordinary there is no rhyme or reason, it perhaps was a quarter of a block, some left over field tiles from a million dollar casino project who knows how.  All I know is that I love to open the crates.  Then just occasionally you see this.  There are selfish reasons, I have to do my own bathrooms so I am always on the lookout for the exceptional.  But this really is incredible Calacatta.  It will sell fast.  If you would like to buy this particular lot you will have to mention the reference number in the comments of your online order.  Reference it: ‘Calacatta 1×1″ Hexagon Lot# 03052014’ (not very creative name but it will get you product from this lot).  There is 360 sheets to a crate.  My guess is this will be all gone by May 20th.  So if you are reading this in June, I apologize.

Above is a more recent picture this is taken on Friday Sept 9th 2016. The quality if anything has improved just slightly we have got the base even whiter. 2016 really has been a comeback year for Calacatta Gold.

Calacatta 2″ Hexagon Marble Mosaic Back in Stock

Calacatta Hexagon 2" Mosaic TileCalacatta Gold 2″ Hexagon Honed Marble Mosaic Tile for now just $15.95SF

Calacatta Hexagon from The Builder DepotWith the right blocks selected Calacatta Hexagon Marble Mosaic Tile is exceptional with is white base and incredible veining

Our Calacatta 2″ Hexagon honed marble mosaic tile arrived on the 11th of March 2014.  As it arrived I opened the crate opened a box and took a picture with my iPhone.  Nothing too artistic.  Packed in individual shrink wrapped packages, this Calacatta is superb.  Given the quality of the stone it is clearly understandable why we shrink wrap each mosaic, taking the extra step to ensure this product arrives to our customers in the best possible condition is vital.  Otherwise is would be an absolute waste 😦 (a waste of perfect stone like this would be awful).

It has taken months and months to finally get the quality we have been looking for.  We did not have enough premium Calacatta Gold to make any of this polished, just enough for 1,720SF.  Unfortunately or fortunately now there is only 340SF left.  There is a very good chance this will be all gone by March the 16th (all sold in less than a week)

If you are reading this post on March the 31st, then it has almost certainly all shipped by now.  We do however have another shipment arriving very soon.  It is the same grade as we do not accept anything less.  You can even see the 3×6″ on the left hand side of the pallet, it is the same block and equally exceptional.  We will have a container of Calacatta honed arriving every month.  This is the plan.  I do not think we can get anymore at this quality level.

Calacatta 1×1″ Hexagon and Venato 3×6″ Honed Subway Tile

Calacatta 1x1" Hexagon with Venato 3x6"On the left is Calacatta 1″ Hexagon Honed $15.95SF on the Right is Carrara Venato 3×6″ Honed Subway Tile $7.00SF

People are used to seeing Carrara in retailers.  The common view of Carrara is gray with gray veining.  The reality is if you have offices in Europe (like us) you can actually get some far lighter shades of marble stone.  In this image above we are showing the 1″ Hexagon Calacatta with the 3×6″ Honed Venato.

Anyone looking for a Calacatta bathroom but doesn’t quite have the budget for Calacatta 3×6″ Subway Tiles ($16.95SF) the Carrara Venato Collection in a 3×6″ format is a great substitute for only $7.00SF.   The whiter base of the Venato blends nicely with the Hexagon.  The Venato will not have the Calacatta gold veining, but it will look good on the walls and due to it’s white base offer a good option or substitute, when budgets or availability are an issue.

New Calacatta Mosaics Arrive

Calacatta Herringbone Mosaic TileCalacatta 1×2″ Herringbone Mosaic Tile available in Honed (pictured above) or Polished for $15.95SF (introductory low price)

Calacatta 1x1" Hexagon Mosaic1×1″ Calacatta Hexagon Available in Honed & Polished for $15.95 a sheet (introductory low price)

It is the white base and subtle gold veining that makes this product so desirable.  Exactly what we (thebuilderdepot.com) look for from Italy in Calacatta.  A white base with gold veining, but not overly busy.  Calacatta is such a difficult product to work with from quarry selection.  If you have too much veining or do not mix the stones well on the mosaic, the result can be drastically different.  But at The Builder Depot with our decades of experience and a physical presence in Europe we are able to work with our suppliers from block selection to end user.

That is a key difference in our business.  Not just the incredible prices.  It is the fact we work with the product from the selection of the block through to packing the shipment to the end user.  For more information on this particular lot please reference July 11th Calacatta shipment and email is sales@thebuilderdepot.com.

Finally the Calacatta 2″ honed hexagon and 3×6″ subway tile is back in stock.  We pulled out some pieces from the pallets.  The skirting is actually polished, but due to the fact that the honed is a satin finish and not a chalky honed they go together quite well.  Any questions please email questions@thebuilderdepot.com or if you would like to buy any of these product here please go to our website section on Calacatta.
