Inside Italy’s Marble Mountains

Recently, Business Insider released this video highlighting one of our favorites, Carrara marble. A few highlights:

  • A slab of Carrara marble can cost up to $400 per square meter.
  • The luxury stone comes the Apuan Alps, a mountain range in northern Tuscany that stretches for 58 km and reaches 2,000 meters high.
  • The Carrara quarries have produced more marble than any other place on Earth.
  • The market as a whole is worth over $1.1 billion and produces 4 million tons of marble every year, with 13,000 people involved.

Be sure to check-out the video or read the full article on Business Insider.
