Natural marble countertops are strong and beautiful, and are a timeless home accent. Marble is a metamorphic rock made out of limestone that has undergone tremendous pressure for very long periods of time. Due to its strength, it has been used in various construction projects for centuries.
Its beauty lead marble to become the favourite material of Roman and Greek sculptors and architects. Its extensive variety of colourful patterns made it a symbol of tradition and refined taste. It has also been used in thin sheets to cover the walls of churches and palaces in order to increase their looks.
At present, the uses of marble extend from kitchen and bathroom vanity countertops to pillars, stair cases, facing stone and many others. It is also used for more delicate arts, such as various home furnishing and as mentioned previously, sculptures.

Marble countertops are more porous than granite countertops therefore, needing a bit more precaution. Citrus juices, coffee, or alcohol will etch or dull the marble surface. Avoid ring marks left by drinking glasses by using coasters. Protect your marble countertop by using mats under hot dishes and placemats under china, ceramics, silver, or other objects that can scratch the surface.
