What is Marble?
A hard limestone in a crystalline or granular state and capable
of taking a polish, occurring in many varieties; much used
in sculpture and architecture.
One of the most luxurious materials available for internal
wall and floors, marble has the advantage over other stones
of its wide colour range, from whites to blacks and including
pinks, greens, reds and beige shades. When polished, its true
beauty comes to light showing the veining and colouring.
Veining in most marbles adds visual interest and effect.
All marbles take an excellent polish without the need for
application of chemicals. They are normally available in slab
and tile form. Honed and non-slip finishes can be produced.
Marble has been created by nature and is both resilient and
beautiful, each type of marble is unique to its own locality.
For hundreds of years these properties have cause marble to
be used for a variety of both internal and external purposes.
It provides an excellent internal wall and floor finish,
particularly in such applications as the entrance halls of
public buildings, offices, banks, hotels, leisure complexes,
shopping malls and individual shops.
Marble is also ideal for use in domestic housing for such
purposes as hall
and fireplace surrounds.
