"Marble counter tops and general use in the kitchen has been in existence for hundreds of years in Europe. It has been only recently that marble kitchen counter tops have been accepted as a viable option in the United States. Leading the way is Vermont Danby Marble® due to its low absorption rate of less than .10% - lower than many granites. Danby Marble not only provides a technically sound marble kitchen counter top, but it provides the long lasting beauty and enduring strength of white marble just as Europe and the rest of the world has known for centuries." - www.vermontquarries.com
