Timeless Beauty of Marble

Marble is crystallized limestone that can be polished to a mirror finish, which brings depth in its color and creates timeless beauty. Not only is it beautiful in appearance, but it also makes an excellent countertop material for bathroom tops, tabletops, and fireplace surround. We recommend a honed matte finish when using in a high-use kitchen environment as it is less durable than granite. This gorgeous metamorphic stone is softer than granite which lends itself more to staining and scratching than granite. This stone typically is available with a glossy surface.

Marble can be reactive when acids come in contact with it, and etch marks may appear. Promptly wipe away tomato juice, lemon juice, perfume, or toothpaste. Marble is softer than granite and will wear at a faster rate. Avoid scratching and exercise caution when using knives or sharp objects around this stone. It’s best to use a mild, neutral pH detergent or stone soap when cleaning your marble countertops. Make sure to rinse the surface with clean, clear water, and dry it after you’ve finished cleaning.
