Origins of marble
Marble was once a favoured material for Greek and Roman architects, much of which can still be seen in Athens, Rome and, indeed, across the world. Today, Ashgabat, in Central Asia, is home to the largest concentration of marble structures, covering a total area of 4.5 million square metres – and recognized by the Guinness World Records!
Marble can also be seen in a number of famous structures worldwide, from the Washington Monument in the USA, to the Taj Mahal in India. Marble’s been a key building material for generations – and it continues to be used by sculptors today.
It’s clear from the longevity of these structures that marble is a hard wearing, durable material and today, marble tiles have become a distinctive feature of many modern homes, providing a beautiful, lasting finish.
More about the material
Marble creates a distinct, sophisticated look, with its unique vein patterns and colour streaks. The natural stone is classified as either Dolomite, Magnesium or Calcite, and each comes in an endless spectrum of shades, patterns and finishes.
