Marble

Marble is one of the natural treasures of our planet.  It has graced homes, buildings, and art, since ancient times.  Marble is a metamorphic rock made up of calcium carbonate, commonly used for its beauty in interior design and architecture. Its classic look and smooth surface has made it a popular choice for building materials, sculptures, and even kitchen countertops.

The formation of marble starts with a sedimentary rock, like limestone, undergoing intense heat and pressure. This transforms the rock into a more solid and dense material, known as marble. With its unique mineral composition, marble is prized for its versatility, durability, and the stunning beautiful patterns and veins that run through it.

Michelangelo’s famous sculpture, David, is a testament to the timeless appeal of marble. Its ability to hold fine details and shine with a soft sheen makes it a sought-after material for both classical and modern designs.

Despite its beauty, marble is considered a softer stone in comparison to other popular choices like granite and quartzite. Proper maintenance is essential to keep your prized marble looking its best.
