Marble is also known for its versatility in the making of beautiful artifacts, right from sculptures and monuments to walling and flooring tiles.

Natural stone is one of the most sought after furnishing materials since ancient times. History reveals its value amongst then rulers. It was available for those noble few who had high purchasing power, reason being it was hard to extract and process, due to lack of mechanization.

Origin of Marble

Origin of marble stone for human era is derived from limestone and deriving it from deep interiors of the earth. The metamorphic rock which is subjected to intense heat and pressure for millions of years re-crystallizes to marble. Natural phenomena create a unique appearance in the stone with vibrant color combinations.

Marble Quarrying and processing

Marble is extracted from specific marble mines by cutting the large portion of rock from the adjacent rock and enabling transportation of huge rocks to nearby processing units. The rocks are processed in mechanized processing units where large rocks are cut as per requirement into slabs, tiles, and more. The slabs are processed at first, preceded by flooring tiles and lasts is walling tile. The natural material is not uniform in color therefore small variation is seen in every tile when processed and when preserved.

Processing of tiles

Polished marble tiles are checked for any faults. In case of any faults like small fissures, these can be filled with pigmented resins to protect the structural integrity and tile appearances.

Marble Benefits

The hypoallergenic flooring tile options breeds lesser germs as seen in carpeting, thus offering a hygienic platform for walking barefooted.

In hot summer afternoons, marble tiles in interior flooring offers a cool delight to feet, thus creating a striking balance between the temperatures outside and the comfort zone of the person. The more practical features of marble flooring tiles enable people to get the right combination of interior decoration material in the form of flooring, walling and sculpting marble material.
