Types of Marble in India

Famously introduced in Italy, marble stone is known to be high-grade and luxurious material. The popularity of this charming stone is anchored to its roots and history; firstly, it has been proven to stand the test of time and adapt to different styles. Secondly, Italians observed a high-quality control standard and are experts in cutting and carving stones. Lastly, marble is considered unmatched among other stones in terms of durability and beauty. These are a few reasons why it is one of the most sought-after stones in construction practices. However, the delicate Italian marble has proven to be porous and quickly catches stains and hairline cracks. In the present time, it also became more expensive.
