Marble is a metamorphic rock, whose name is derived from the Greek word meaning “sparkle”. In the marble formation process, small limestone crystals, getting into different temperature and pressure conditions, melt together forming larger crystals, and in the result of this process the marble gets its layered or streaky texture.
Marble is most often used in different decorative solutions, which can be explained with physical characteristics of the marble, because, although the marble surface is moisture resistant and also resistant to rapid changes in temperature, it is a relatively soft structure, so the surface made of this material requires a bit more care than, for example, a granite surface.
Marble offers a wide choice of colours and richness of patterns; different surface textures are available.
