Marble is an igneous stone that occurs naturally by the metamorphoses of limestone. It is made up of many different compounds but mainly consists of calcium carbonate, which is why marble countertops are normally light and creamy in color. Marble has been used over the centuries for many things, including statues, fireplace surrounds, hearths and tile. Marble is very soft, stains easily and is affected by acid. Regular sealing can help in this area, but stains and scratches in marble are to be expected. Marble has a clean, bright, timeless look that will age along with your home.
