Marble is a rock that has been formed over millions of years with different minerals that have metamorphosed from Limestone to become a unique natural stone with durable characteristics and a luxurious appeal.

Marble has been formed from sedimentary rocks that have suffered a natural crystallization of the original minerals, resulting in interlocking stone rocks that vary in appearance according to the different minerals that compose it; which can be silica, sand, clay and iron oxides among others. These natural impurities allow for an endless variation of stone types which have made marble the most famous natural stone in the world.

Marble has been used since ancient times in the construction of monuments (Taj Mahal in India, Marble Arch in London, etc), statues (David by Michelangelo and paving amongst establishments of kings and emperors.
