Marble is a beautiful limestone that is made up of calcite and dolomite. Marble has been known to naturally crystallize over periods fo time, making it extremely beautiful and a top choice for artists. It is used for making sculptures as well as furniture. Because of its beauty and elegance, marble is often used to make kitchen countertops.
Marble countertops can be found in a wide variety of different hues and colors. The color of the stone is determined by the area from which the marble was mined and the finishing process brings out the natural colors and glow of the stone. Because marble is a natural stone that must be mined, each piece of the marble used to create the countertop will be unique and it may be very difficult to find matching marble pieces at a later date to add to your countertop.
