In exceptional homes, spas, and other places, real marble bathrooms tiles project the highest level of luxury and style. The natural colors and patterns blended nicely with beautiful accessories and other décor options to create a genuinely opulent setting.
Real marble is a natural metamorphic stone formed when limestone is subjected to centuries of intense pressure. Depending on the variable conditions of nature plus the material components which may consist of mineral calcite, clay, quartz, pyrite, micas, or graphites, the color and texture are variable. Each tile will be different from the next.
As for durability, marble is forever. The great art sculptures of Michelangelo and others were created hundreds of years ago and are still exhibited without any deterioration. The Taj Mahal in India is a 500-year-old edifice made from white marble that still shines brilliantly.
