Marble is a metamorphic rock resulting from regional or sedimentary carbonate rocks – either limestone or dolomite rock. Because of its formation marble is not a hard stone and therefore scratches easily and is very porous. It is not suitable for the kitchen, or areas where you need durability. Marble is mainly used as a decorative material in bathrooms and entrances. Marble comes in beautiful marble varieties, which can add warmth to any application. It is also available in very light colours.
