A marble foyer or bathroom makes a tangible contribution to the value of one’s property.

Q.2 How do I clean and take care of my stone?

Using marble for home interiors presents a marvelous panoramic view to home. If you have spent a good amount of money on installing marble as flooring or for decorative structures at home, you need to take special care to maintain the beauty of this stone.

Q3. What’s the difference between marble and granite?

Although both are stones and both are quarried from the earth, granite and marble (and marble’s relatives – limestone, onyx and travertine) are very different from each other. The greatest difference lies in the porosity, softness and durability of marble when compared to granite.

Q4. Why are some stones more expensive than others?

Availability, locations of quarries in the world (due to transportation expenses), the rarity of the color, and the amount of labor required to extract the stones all affect the price of natural stone.
