Marbles are traditionally prized for their aesthetic appeal, accentuated by pronounced veining and often bold colors. Marble is ideal for bathrooms, foyers, floors, wall cladding and hearths. Marble has also become a very popular choice for countertops. Due to their mineralogical makeup, marbles are vulnerable to either abrasion or chemical attack. Exposure to acidic solutions such as lemon juice, tomatoes, red wine and vinegar should be avoided. Acidic solutions can permanently etch the surface of marble. Although impregnating sealers do an excellent job of preventing stains, they do little to reduce vulnerability to acid attack. Please consult The Stone Collection or your qualified stone fabricator with specific application questions.
