Typically composed of an interlocking mosaic carbonate crystals, marble has been a prized material for sculpture since the early renaissance. Michelangelo was one of the first to use this beautiful stone in his works. Light actually penetrates several millimeters into the stone which gives it the characteristic “waxy” look and brings life to the stone no matter where it is used. Typical construction marble is capable of taking a substantial polish, which adds to its inherent beauty and elegance. This makes it an ideal stone for places you want to have that extra level of sophistication and a pristine appearance. Proper care and maintenance of your stone will ensure that its beauty and glow will endure over time.
