An Overview of Marble
A wide variety of different colors and patterns, this coveted stone caters to a variety of interior design styles and personal preferences spanning from understated, bright tones to bold, dark options - and everything in between.
Marble can be found in all parts of the world and comes from the crystallization of rocks like limestone and dolomite. The wide variety of colors can be attributed to the minerals of the soil as the rocks are being crystallized; minerals that infiltrate the stone alter its final texture and color. A white and uniform marble, for example, is the result of very little minerals in the soil during crystallization.
Other factors, such as the way the marble is cut, also play a significant role in determining its final appearance. A rift-cut occurs when the marble slab is cut from the top, resulting in a more open pattern. A vein cut, on the other hand, is taken from the side, exposing the layers of the stone with a more striped look.
