MARBLE has been very popular building material for millennia, quarried in mountainous regions around the world. Prized for its beauty, style, and elegance, this material has graced the palaces of kings and queens for centuries, making it an upscale, luxurious option for interiors. Marble is a very popular natural stone used for tiles and slabs for floors, countertops, and walls. It is a metamorphic rock that forms when a sedimentary stone, such as limestone, is transformed under heat and pressure into a harder stone with beautiful color and veined patterns.The look of a marble floor can bring the stunning power and dignity of a flowing mountain range into an interior space. It is relatively softer than granite. Marbles can be scratched by kitchen utensils so it is best to use cutting boards and other protective measures.
