Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The recrystallization of the carbonate minerals result in Marble.
Often, the original structure of the carbonate rocks are modified during the metamorphism to render the marble unrecognizable from its original state. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
Granite is normally a coarse grained igneous rock that is comprised of quartz, feldspars and micas. The quartz will be be the lighter color minerals with the remaining consisting of feldspars and muscovite. The dark minerals are hornblende or biotite.
Granite is by far the most common rock found in the outer crust of the planet. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground. Granite is an outstanding material for countertops.
As the name implies it is a countertop product that is made of quartz and resins. Before granite slabs were resined, Engineered Stone had one major advantage over its natural counterpart, it was difficult to stain. Now with the advent of resined slabs that advantage is gone. The primary difference is the appearance. Man made products come in a large range of consistent colors which do not occur naturally in nature.
You often see engineered stone being used in commercial setting or contemporary ones. You get to decide which look is best for your project.
Soapstone is a metamorphic rock composed of talc, quartz, mica, calcite & iron oxides. It’s soapstone’s talc content that makes it smooth and waxy to the touch, and water resistant. Soapstone has incredible durability and striking beauty.
Soapstone’s unique colour palette and artistic veining patterns give it a unique quality.
WHAT IS SOAPSTONE?
Soapstone is a unique material that builds up an incredible patina over time.
Composed of 85% recycled glass and a binder of cement, recycled glass surfaces are smooth just like polished granite.
Recycled glass slabs are truly a work of art with a sophisticated colour palette. A great environmentally sustainable choice for your countertop.
