Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone is subjected to enormous forces inside the earth's crust.
Marble has long been valued for its beauty and strength - it was and still is widely used in buildings, monuments and sculptures
As a bench top, marble offers a unique, classic and upscale appearance in the kitchen and is also ideal for an elegant bathroom fit-out.
A honed (matt) finish is recommended for kitchen bench top applications. This finish is achieved by grinding the surface with successively finer grades of abrasive but stops short of a full polish. It exhibits a flat or matte finish and takes advantage of the simple fact that minor wear and tear is not as obvious on a surface that has an overall sheen rather than a mirror finish polish.
