Kitchen Countertops / September 25, 2018 / Anthony Williams
The basics: Marble is a natural stone composed of calcium carbonate; it’s in the same stone family as limestone and travertine. Color variations occur in marble due to mineral impurities in the stone. Slabs, rather than tiles, are typically used for countertops, where the dramatic veining can be displayed.
Cons: Most quartz products claim to be heat-resistant, but that doesn’t mean they’re completely heat proof. As with many countertop materials, it’s always best to check with the manufacturer about just how much heat the product is able to withstand.
