Marble

Marble is a crystallized limestone that was compressed and heated deep within the Earth’s crust. Unlike granite, it was never a densely compressed molten rock. Instead, it is has a medium density. Marble has become a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste, which has found its way into many elegant homes. Marble is ideal for bathroom vanity tops, tub surfaces and even fireplace surrounds.
While it may be tempting to choose marble over granite for a kitchen counter top, it is important to realize that marble is softer and more porous than granite, so it can stain and scratch more easily. Its colors, veining, and patterns, though, can be spectacular, and it can be the perfect choice for accent walls, counter back splashes, architectural elements such as fireplace mantels and columns, flooring, and for use in bathrooms.
