    Marble is a Metamorphic Rock

    From a geological point of view, marble is a transformation rock, mostly made from limestone and other carbonate-containing rocks.
    Marble is created under the influence of high pressure and high temperature as a result of tectonic subsidence (regional metamorphosis) or due to rock melting with rising magma bodies (contact metamorphosis).

    Marble can be recognized by its crystalline structure, the deeper the place of origin, the larger the crystals. A typical marble is usually white with a gray, sometimes with a slightly reddish or yellow vein. Everything we think we know as colorful marble types are mostly geological limestone or onyx. Every marble is a natural stone, but not every natural stone is a marble. From a geological point of view, marble is a transformation rock, mostly made from limestone and other carbonate-containing rocks.
    Marble is created under the influence of high pressure and high temperature as a result of tectonic subsidence (regional metamorphosis) or due to rock melting with rising magma bodies (contact metamorphosis).

    Marble properties; Hardness, density and components

    Due to its simple elegance, marble is mainly used indoors as a floor, window sills or stairs. A typical feature of marble is its marbling. Veins or stripes can run through the stone. The grain of marble goes from the thousandth of a millimeter to the centimeter range.

    Marble density and weight

    Most types of marble are soft rocks. Through the “bulk density” (density) we also experience the specific weight of the respective stone. As a rule of thumb to calculate the weight of marble, you can also use 30 kg per cm. Assume thickness per square meter. So you can easily and quickly determine the weight yourself.

    Marble components

    Marble is a metamorphic rock that contains at least 50 percent by volume calcite, dolomite or aragonite. Possible secondary batches can include pyrite, quartz or mica.

    Marble Tiles

    Marble tiles – natural and beautiful, universal and timeless
    Marble tiles are manufactured in many standard formats on modern, fully automated production facilities.

    Marble Floors

    Marble is a popular building material for indoor use.
    Due to its elegant look, marble can be found in all areas of a house.
    Whether in the living room, bedroom or bathroom, a marble floor can be used universally.
    Because of its ability to store heat, a marble floor is particularly suitable
    in combination with underfloor heating.

    Marble Slabs

    Marble slabs as large-format, mirror-image cut wall slabs, bathroom slabs, window sills or stairs all have one thing in common; they are made from large plates (so-called slabs or raw plates).

    These plates (semi-finished products) are up to 300cm long and up to 200cm high. In the construction industry mostly 2, 3 or 4 cm thick.The sculptor and tomb sector also thicker, 10, 15cm, etc.

    The surface of these marble slabs can be polished, matt polished, patinated or sandblasted. Window sills, large wall panels or floor panels are usually made from 2cm thick marble slabs. For stairs or vanity tops, 3 or 4 cm thick panels are usually used. In the case of cuts that require more than one marble slab, these should, if possible, be made from a raw block (marble cuboid).

    Marble Stairs

    There are marble stairs in all colors, shapes and price ranges for the way up. Depending on the client’s wishes, a marble staircase can be made in classic polished, matt-ground or antique-patinated. Marble stairs can be made as covering stairs (steps and risers) or as cantilever stairs, where two 3 cm thick panels with a fabric in between are glued together.
    The shape of the steps is also freely selectable. Whether straight, quarter-turn or half-turn everything is possible. These diverse design options make each marble staircase unique.

    Marble Windowsill

    The marble windowsill is more than a shelf in front of the window. Marble window sills are mainly used indoors. They can be color-coordinated with the windows, furniture or floor tiles and thus fit into any ambiance.

    The most common thicknesses for marble window sills are 2 or 3 cm. In order to obtain a larger storage area, the window sills can be made with a protrusion or, if desired, flush with the wall. The corners can be cut at an angle or rounded. The edges of the window sills can be made straight, in round bars or quarter bars.

    Marble Countertop

    A marble worktop is the culmination of every kitchen and is more than just a place to cook. Marble kitchen tops can be used in various surface treatments, e.g. glossy polished, matt-ground or antique patinated. We produce the desired cuts for you exactly according to your dimensions, drawings or templates. Processing such as boreholes, cutouts for sinks (mounted or built-in), cutouts for hobs(attached or flush), various edge processing (straight, round or quarter bar) is also no problem. A drainer with a slope can also be incorporated into the marble kitchen top.

    Polygonal marble slabs

    Polygonal panels derive their charm from their irregularity, they do not fit into any fixed installation pattern.
    Polygonal plates are irregular polygonal plates such as Triangular, square, pentagonal, etc.
    Polygonal marble slabs are often used indoors. These are either already pre-glued to a net, or are available loose.
    Pre-glued marble polygonal slabs are usually 1 cm thick, about 10 cm large in size individually, glued to mats 30 x 30 cm, surface treatment mostly drummed antique. Loose polygonal slabs made of antique tumbled marble are usually delivered in bags of 1 sqm.
    In addition, marble polygonal slabs are available in many different sizes, thicknesses, and surfaces such as matt-ground or antique patinated.

    Bathroom with Marble

    With a marble bathroom, you are very trendy. Hardly any other natural stone conveys the feeling of being in your own wellness oasis better than marble.
    In addition to wall and floor tiles, large-format shower walls, vanities, shelves and much more can also be made from marble slabs.
    With shower floors, you have the option of either covering them with tiles or installing large-format panels with a corresponding slope. It should be noted that the stone fulfills the slip resistance for the wet area.
    In the case of tiles, the slip resistance can be achieved, among other things, by the higher proportion of joints in mosaic tiles or polygonal panels.

    Antique Marble

    Regardless of whether you prefer modern or rustic furnishings, antique marble or travertine creates a very special flair. Wall or floor tiles can be antiquely patinated, i.e. slightly roughened on the surface, with straight sawn edges or antique drums. Antique tumbled marble tiles are available in many different formats (e.g. 10 x 10cm, 20 x 20cm or 30 x 30cm)as well as glued mosaic tiles on mesh or polygonal panels. Antique tumbled tiles and plates unfold their special feel-good atmosphere, particularly in bathrooms. Since traces of use are definitely desired with antique marble, the stone can be used without hesitation also be installed in the kitchen.
