At marble.com we source our stone only from the most reputable quarries from around the globe, including those from Italy, Spain, Brazil, and India.
5. Why is some stone more expensive than others?

6. Do I have to seal natural stone?
We do recommend sealing natural stone countertops periodically, the frequency of sealing the stone depends on the material.
7. What is a honed finish?
A honed stone finish refers to the smooth, matte surface of the material, which creates a visibly lighter and softer tone. While honed finish might be an ideal design choice for some homeowners, it also makes the stone more susceptible to staining and etching.

Most chips, smaller than a dime in diameter, can be repaired by the homeowner using a chip repair kit. We do recommend professional service care for larger chips.
9. Can I install my own countertops?
