It is a natural stone formed from fossil sediment deposits, which have been placed under the earth’s tremendous pressure for at least a few million years. The combination of the natural materials in these deposits, along with natural geologic events, produces unique veining with a richness of depth and intensity. Marble material is generally softer than granite; therefore scratching occurs more so on marble. This characteristic should be considered when making your stone selection.
Marble is available in a multitude of colors from light to dark, and generally boasts beautiful flowing veins. This unequaled beauty makes marble a natural choice for countertops, bath vanities, wall and floor tiles or slabs, and tub and fireplace surrounds. If desired, marble can be used for any countertop as long as the homeowner is careful to avoid letting spills stay without cleaning over a period of time.
