Marble is a type of metamorphic rock derived from the recrystallization of sedimentary limestone exposed to intense heat and pressure. The characteristics of marble include being heat resistant yet cool to the touch, making it ideal for use as a fireplace or a countertop when baking or cooking. Marble is also effectively utilized both indoors and outdoors usage, although due to marble’s natural susceptibility to biological, chemical, and mechanical weathering, consistent maintenance and the application of a sealant will increase marble’s extensive longevity. That's why we use marble to make marble bathtubs, marble pedestal sinks, marble sculptures and marble fireplaces etc.
Sandstone is the second most commonly found sedimentary rock on earth.As a design material, sandstone feels cool and hard to the touch yet provides a contrasting warm earth tone coloration plate and smooth patternings at a more cost-effective price than marble or granite making it a popular choice for many consumers.
