Marble is a metamorphic rock that is found in the mountainous regions of many countries around the world. It is the product of limestone that has been crystallized by changes in temperature and geologic pressure. The majority of the world’s marble is quarried in India, China, Italy, and Spain.
Marble works beautifully in a bathroom setting where the marble’s natural veining and colors create stunning designs. It is perfect for showers, vanity tops and even bathroom floors and walls. Marble is elegant, timeless and will add value and beauty to your home or office.
Marble’s Scratch and Stain Resistancy
Marble is a far less dense stone than granite or engineered stone. Because of marble’s vulnerability to acidic stains from foods such as vinegar, lemon juice, wine or tomatoes, it is generally less durable than granite or an engineered stone for highly utilized areas. However, marble can be sealed with a special coating to aid in preventing the absorption of acids that may stain the stone.
It is wise to avoid the use of acidic or abrasive cleaners that may dull or scratch the marble’s surface over time. Like granite, marble should be cleaned with a mild soap and water and a glass cleaner may be used afterward to produce a glossy finish.
