MARBLE AND GRANITE; WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

MARBLE

Marble is metamorphic or sedimentary in origin, with a smooth surface typically striated with veins of minerals. Some marble is quartz-based, while others are composed of serpentine, a greenish mineral. Commercial marble is typically available in variations of black and white.

When it comes to installing marble flooring elevation decoration and countertops, different types of stone are installed the same way, starting with a template transferred to a slab, which is then cut to fit and finished. The slab is set into place. Marble countertops have more marvelous than others. Specifically, they are gorgeous natural stone materials and they require a significant amount of care.

RIGHT CHOICE

If you have different  marble stone options,  you need to request that they are placed next to one another so you can see them together before they are delivered. This can help you make a decision regarding whether or not they look good together or create the look you desire for your kitchen.

The pattern is larger in marble. The color tends to be fairly consistent with veins running through it that concentrate the color. A gray-blue slab of marble might have darker blue veins; a gray-pink slab might contain veins that are quite rosy-red in color.

 GRANITE

Granite is metamorphic or igneous, made up of silica, mica, feldspar, and quartz, generally with a packed, granular surface. Color varies from light to dark, presented in flecks, veins or solid patterns. While it’s easy to believe that all stone by nature is super strong and nearly indestructible, it’s important to know the full story.

Granite is very durable but must be sealed at least annually to ensure liquids do not gradually seep into the stone. Granite is resistant to heat, but you should always be careful It is a harder stone than marble and holds up better to chips and scratches. It is a good idea to stick to colors and hues of Granite that have the same undertones.

APPLICATIONS

If you choose a warmer shade for your Granite, consider using one that has brown or warm taupe undertones. Another example is if you choose Granite for your island that features veins that are a cool gray shade, then opt for black or dark gray granite. If you choose a neutral shade for your home, hotel, and a project that is lighter in color, then consider a darker accent surface for the rest of your flooring, elevation, decoration, and countertops.

Granite is harder than marble, so it is more resistant to chips and scratches. Both materials are heat resistant, though caution should be used with hot pots and pans in the kitchen or hot hair tools in the bathroom.
