Marble is a metamorphic rock found in the mountainous regions of most countries of the world. Because of its beauty and elegance, marble is a popular choice for vanity tops, floors, foyers, fireplace facings and hearths, walls, and windowsills. Marble with its inherent warmth, adds a sophisticated element to the area in which it is installed.
The main building block of marble is calcite crystal. The calcite crystal is vulnerable to attack by mild acids, including those commonly found in kitchen and bar settings. Therefore, the user should be aware of, and accepting of the maintenance and patina that is to be anticipated with this combination. Some marbles are more durable than others in a kitchen setting.
At Rock Solid we feature marble that is quarried right here in the Northeast. Vermont Danby Marble is superior due to its low absorption rate. Aesthetically Danby marble offers 8 different selections with each selection differing in veining, color and consistency. It offers a warm, classic look unparalleled by other stones and color ranges.
Also Quarried in the northeast is Vermont Verde Antique®. A dark green serpentine stone quarried in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Vermont Verde Antique® serpentine countertops are chosen over marble or granite countertops because serpentine has the warmth and look of marble yet is harder and less porous than many types of granite.
If you love the look of marble in your kitchen these stones are an excellent choice.
Marble is an easy choice for your bathroom needs. Vanity tops, tub decks, shower walls, jambs and benches, niches, thresholds and windowsills are all areas to show off the natural beauty and classic look of marble.
Other popular marble choices include: Italian Carrara, Calcutta, Crema Marfil, Light Emperador and Bursa beige.
