Marble

Marble is a metamorphic stone that is formed naturally from sedimentary stone by intense pressure and high temperatures within the earth. This alters its crystalline structure, introducing other minerals that produce the valuable colors and veining that are seen in marble stones.

Of the greatest advantages to marble is the variety of colors, patterns, and shades available.  The characteristic veining of marble is a feature that provides an elegant and refined look to any counter top. Stone Worlds Designs of Hot Springs/Central Arkansas recommends using it in low traffic areas such as bathroom vanities and decorative tables because it is softer than other materials making it more prone to scratches or chips.

Additionally, because it is softer and more porous, marble has a larger absorption rate. Sealers are used to help protect this stone from moisture, stains, and scratches.  it is however, tolerant to heat. Important things to consider as you choose your materials.

But, that said, marble adds a sophisticated look to your creation through its inherit warmth. The naturally random appearance, general ease of maintenance, and engineering characteristics make it a popular choice for counter tops, fireplaces, and floors. It is often preferred among home owners and businesses because of its beauty and elegance.
