Correct spelling of the famous CalacuttaThe name “Calcutta” marble stems from both misspelling, and confusion with famous marble structures in India; Like the Taj Mahal or the MarblePalace at Kolkata. And it doesn’t help that Kolkata sounds a lot like Calacatta! And while there is plenty of stone, marble, and granite quarried in India. Calacatta Marble by definition comes exclusively from Italy. “Calacutta” is just a misspelling of “Calcutta” but neither is correct when referring to Calacatta Marble.
Spelling can mean two different things! When you’re referencing , make sure you spell it correct; which is = . If you spell it like this = , your referring to a city in India!
