Marble’s quintessential beauty symbolises success and immortality.
Marble is formed via sedimentation. Silt, plant matter, shells and skeletons of animals solidify over time into stone. Marble is actually formed from limestone which has been exposed to heat and intense pressure. Marble is highly resistant to abrasion, and is perfect for floors. Marble can also be used as tabletops and benchtops. Marble is a porous stone, so it should be sealed properly.
Never use acidic cleaners to clean marble, as acids cause marble to fizz and dissolve. Lemon juice, vinegar, nail polish remover, and orange juice can damage marble. Warm water and a soft cloth is usually all that is required to clean marble.
