Marble is a metamorphic rock which is formed when limestone re-crystallizes. This process is caused by heat and pressure which interlocks the stone particles to become a beautiful mosaic of crystals.
The different arrays of colours which are found in marble are created by the various mineral impurities found within it which include clay, silt and sand. Its specific colours and textural variations make for highly decorative and exceptionally beautiful for marble worktops and marble floors and bathroom vanities.
Marble must be maintained and correctly sealed for practical use but the look of true marble cannot be matched by a composite.
