MARBLE

Richly veined and available in a variety of natural colors, marble is perhaps the most famous of natural stones, long associated with elegance and wealth. Along with the variety of colors, marble offers a variety of finishes: polished (shiny), honed (matte) and tumbled (natural). Because marble is a softer stone, it is best used where it won't to be subjected to frequent use and abuse, as it can be scratched by a knife and is reactive to the acids found in vinegar and citrus. Marble is an excellent choice for bathrooms, walls and flooring, as well as for tub decks and fireplace surrounds.
