Created by nature and expertly extracted by man, marble is formed by the metamorphism of limestone and consists primarily of calcite, dolomite and sedimentary elements.
Marble is softer than granite and is mainly used for vanities, bath surrounds, showers, window sills, flooring, staircases, cladding, furniture etc. The unique DNA of this natural stone provides a never seen diversity of colours and patterns and no 2 marbles are alike. The presence of deposits, iron, feldspar etc., determines the look of a marble. These impurities are sometimes arranged in bands or patches contributing to the allure of this stone.
Veined marbles are very versatile and can put a classic or modern stamp on your décor, dramatically coloured marbles provide an accent and incorporating warmer toned stones can create a well-balanced design.
