About Marble Counter Tops
Marble is a rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism, it is composed primarily of the mineral calcite. After being sanded with progressively finer abrasives, marble can be polished to a high luster. This allows attractive pieces of marble to be cut, polished and used as floor tiles, architectural panels, facing stone, window sills and many other pieces of decorative stone. Marble is not as resistant as granite, the calcite makes the marble more susceptible to abrasion, stain and to attack by acidic agents, but even though it requires more care and maintenance, marble is widely used on bathroom and kitchen countertops.
