What is Marble?

Marble countertops are durable and elegant, with a warm, glowing quality. Marble can be carved, and has distinctive veining that ensures every piece is unique.

Marble is a sedimentary rock, which consists of limestone that has undergone heat and pressure metamorphosis under temperatures in excess of 1800ºF. The texture of marble depends on the form, size and uniformity of the marble’s grain.

Marble is one of the oldest architectural and decorative materials. Marble has been valued for thousands of years for its rich palette of beautiful colors and appearance. Marble and marble countertops are perfect pretty much anywhere in the house.
