MARBLE COUNTERTOPS

WHAT IS NATURAL MARBLE?

The geologic definition of marble is a metamorphic rock predominately consisting of fine- to coarse-grained, recrystallized calcite and/or dolomite. It has a texture of relatively uniform crystals ranging from very large (inches) to very fine, small, uniform-sized crystals.

While marble is a beautiful natural stone with huge aesthetic appeal, there are certain characteristics that should be considered before finally deciding to use it for your project. These are its ability to scratch, etch and stain.
