Origin of Marble

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.
