What is Marble – the Classic and Elegant Natural Stone
Marble is significantly softer than granite, making carving and etching much easier. For this reason, marble is often used as a decorative element or to create pillars, fountains or sculptures. Sometimes patterns are cut into the stone. Due to its softness and its highly reactive nature to acids, marble is not recommended for kitchen countertops. Marble can be used for flooring, vanities, sinks and fireplace surrounds.
