Crema Marfil tile is quarried in Spain, near Alicante

Crema Marfil tile  is quarried in Spain, near Alicante. Many of the cream or beige coloured marbles that are sold originate from somewhere other than Spain, often from Turkey.

There are apparently occurrences of the great Italian marbles, such as “Carrara” and “Calacatta”, being exported from the far east and “French” limestone coming from north Africa.

Let’s assume that a marble or limestone labelled as first grade really is the best quality output from the particular quarry. However, the rock that is dug out of some quarries is simply a better quality raw material than the rock that lies within other quarries. Therefore, it makes sense that the best material that comes from one hole in the ground may be better or worse than the best material from a different hole in the ground.

The usual classification is that higher grade Crema Marfil has a cleaner, paler background with consistent colouring and less veining whereas a lower grade Crema Marfil may have more veining with a greater degree of shading in the backround colour. The result is that lower grade Crema Marfil tiles can look more like “patchwork” when laid. More veining can also lead to more breakages during the cutting and installation process.

Marble is one of the most beautiful, versatile and durable natural stones.

Marble is one of the most beautiful, versatile and durable natural stones. Since ancient times, marble and marble tiles have been used to decorate homes throughout the world. Because marble is so strong and durable, it is often used in high-traffic areas in homes and offices. Marble tile is like other tiles in that it is porous. In other words: It can quickly absorb any stain. To prevent staining, marble floors are sealed, which not only prevents stains, but cracks as well.

Classification of Crema Marfil

The usual classification is that higher grade Crema Marfil has a cleaner, paler background with consistent colouring and less veining whereas a lower grade Crema Marfil may have more veining with a greater degree of shading in the backround colour.  More veining can also lead to more breakages during the cutting and installation process.

The Spanish quarry that we use grades their marble (and their limestone) very carefully and offers the following grades:-

- Select: highest grade with a uniform, pale coloured background and very little veining. The quarry reserves this classification for the very best blocks and this is seldom available in large quantities.

-  Standard: clean, uniform background with little veining. Nice solid marble with some character.

- Commercial: Some variation in background colour and variable veining. (See adjacent photo of crates of tiles for an example from a recent project).

- Classico: heavily veined, often with fissures in the surface.

Crema Marfil Look Alikes That Are Prone to Being Re-Labelled

The cream background with cinnamon coloured veining makes it a popular choice all round the house as flooring tiles and as bespoke pieces for vanity tops, staircases and fireplaces.

However, it is not always what it seems. Real Crema Marfil limestone, (not marble) is quarried in Spain, near Alicante. Many of the cream or beige coloured marbles that are sold as cheap Crema Marfil actually originate from somewhere other than Spain, often from Turkey, China or elsewhere outside the European Union.

It is not just the Crema Marfil look-alikes that are prone to being re-labelled. The same applies to many of the world’s better known marbles and limestones. There are apparently occurrences of the great Italian marbles, such as “Carrara” and “Calacatta”, being exported from the far east and “French” limestone coming from north Africa.

There are apparently occurrences of the great Italian marbles, such as “Carrara” and “Calacatta”, being exported from the far east and “French” limestone coming from north Africa. Sometimes, it’s the quarries and producers that change the names and sometimes it’s the UK importer or distributor. It can be confusing to us in the trade so what must it be like to the end client!

But in reality, what does it matter? Is it important to the end user if the marble is not actually from where the name suggests it comes from? It could be argued that the country of origin is not really relevant and it’s the quality of the product that counts.
