What is Marble?

Marble, being a natural stone, has a different characteristic in each continent, country and region of the world. The number and amount of stone types existing on our planet is unlimited, each one having its own colour, strength, appearance, uniqueness, maintenance, texture.

Marble is composed primarily of crystallized limestone. It is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure over tens of thousands of years deep in the earth.

The stone is quarried all over the world and comes in a variety of colour. Some useful information you may want to know about Marble;

Appearance: Marble has a classic and timeless look. The natural stone’s stylish veining will bring aesthetic appeal to your home.

Resistance: Being composed of calcite, marble has a hardness rank of third on the Mohs hardness scale, Dimond being tenth in the same scale. As a result, marble is easy to carve, and that makes it useful for producing Accessories and Ornamental objects.

Finish: Marble can be polished to a high lustre. This allows attractive pieces of marble to be cut, polished, and used as floor tiles, architectural panels, windowsills, stair treads, columns, and many other pieces of decorative stone.

Uniqueness: Did you know that every giraffe is completely unique? It’s true! Their spots are never the same, like people and their fingerprints—no two are alike. In that same manner, no two pieces of marble are identical either. They might be of the same basic colour or they might have similar veins, but they are still unique and one-of-a-kind.
