Marble is natural stone that forms from limestone in large deposits that can be mined on a large scale from quarries or mines. Marble is a light coloured rock; typically, the lighter the marble, the fewer impurities. Marble that is mixed with clay or other minerals can be grey, pink, yellow or black in colour.
Marble is a very hard stone that makes it easy to carve or sculpt. With progressive, fine sanding, it can also be polished to a very high finish, making it a great choice for beautiful home furnishings.
Limestone is also a natural stone that is very durable and heat-resistant. Limestone is formed from mud, clay, shells and/or fossils over time. Like marble, natural limestone is abundantly available and typically has a light sandy colour.
