Marble

  • Tends to be one or two colors
  • Very quiet and subtle in nature
  • Marble is a more homogenous and compact rock
  • Can be both metamorphic and sedimentary
  • Always contains calcite
  • Slight veining with a soft appearance
  • Marble is a lot softer and less durable than granite so it generally has a less glossier look than granite because it can’t be as extensively polished
