Marble offers an upscale and classic appearance. With its rich color tones, mirror-like finish and dramatic veining, marble conveys the ultimate feeling of elegance and formality. Colors range from white and muted browns to reds and greens depending on the mineral impurities present in the stone. It is highly recommended to view an entire slab before deciding to use a specific stone as your countertop; each stone is a product of nature and very unique.
Being more porous and softer than granite, marble will scratch, stain and etch easily. Sealing twice a year will aid in not allowing fluids to absorb as quickly.
