Marble is ideal for bathrooms, formal floor applications, walls, fireplace surrounds and vanity tops. Ease of care, beauty and elegance make it a top choice for homeowners.
Marble is not recommended for kitchen applications as it is more prone to stains than granite.
Cleaning your stone:
- Use warm water and a small amount of neutral pH non-abrasive soap
- Rinse with clear warm water
- Dry thoroughly with a clean soft cloth
Please note: Cleaners and disinfectants made specifically for calcium carbonate based stones are available at most home centers, hardwares stores, stone fabrication shops and flooring centers. (Directions for use printed on label)
Marble composite: Marble is geologically defined as a metamorphic rock predominately consisting of fine to coarse grained, recrystallized calcite and/or dolomite. In the commercial industry, onyx is traditionally included in the same classification as marble.
Color: Dolomite marble often weathers to a tan or buff color due to the oxidation of a slight amount of iron released from the marble. Calcite marble occurs in many colors from the trace-amount impurities such as organic matater, chlorite, epidote, and minor amounts of land-derived clays, silts, and sands or they may already be stained with the iron in them.
