Natural Stone Slab - Marble
Marble is a calcareous stone defined by its veining and soft, swirling patterns; it's available in polished and honed surfaces. It will create a beautiful finished project for walls, floors, fireplace facings and hearths, foyers, bathrooms, showers and bathtubs. Marble is a softer natural stone than granite and quartzite and more care must be taken to keep it looking new. Knives and other kitchen utensils can scratch its surface. It also reacts to acids, so acidic cleaners or food left on the countertop will leave an etch mark. Some aging is to be expected over time, and many consider this to be part of its overall natural beauty.
