Marble is a very popular natural stone that is quarried and cut into slabs and tiles for a variety of residential and commercial building applications, including countertops, floors, and wall tiles. It is a metamorphic rock that forms when a sedimentary stone, such as limestone, is transformed under heat and pressure into a harder stone with beautiful color and veined patterns. Marble is sometimes confused with granite; however, granite is an igneous rock derived from volcanic magma, not layered sedimentary rock. Granite typically has a pebbly or spotted color pattern, while marble usually has a wavy veined pattern.

Marble, quarried in mountainous regions around the world, has been a very popular building material for millennia. Prized for its beauty, style, and elegance, this material has graced the palaces of kings and queens for centuries, making it an upscale, luxurious option for interiors.


  • Elegant, upscale appearance
  • Natural material
  • Easily polished
  • Accommodates radiant floor heating
  • Adds real estate value

Marble stone is truly a timeless classic when it comes to building materials. Marble has been used since the beginning of time to construct some of the world’s most famous statues and historical structures such as the Taj Mahal, Lincoln Memorial, and Statue of David. In interior design, marble is most commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms. While there are numerous natural stone countertop materials that are beautiful, many homeowners simply feel that there is no comparable material like marble since it is available in numerous colors and styles. One of the main reasons homeowners love marble is for its natural design. Marble slabs have elegant veining making it easy to understand why it is desired by many.

What Type of Rock is Marble? 

Marble is a metamorphic rock. Metamorphic rocks are rocks that have undergone a change in composition due to intense heat and pressure. Marble begins as limestone before being subject to the changing process, referred to as metamorphism.

How Does Marble Form? 

Limestone contains a mineral called calcite. When this calcite recrystallizes, it transforms the limestone into marble. As mentioned above, this process involves high amounts of heat and pressure. Marble can also form from the recrystallization of dolomite.

The Royal Combination

Nothing says pristine and wealth quite like gold and marble. Just look at historical buildings made for royalty like the Chateau de Versailles in France or the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. These buildings are made with marble and compliments to buy gorgeous gold veining and accents fit for a King. Although marble has been used for centuries in recent years it has become the most in-demand stone for the home. Currently one of the most on-trend color combinations is white and gold making marble even more desired than ever.

Marble by Cost/Price:

Marble floors are a premium architectural element, and they are priced accordingly. Generally, they fall on the high-end range of all-natural stone, and they generally do not last as long as slate, granite, and other natural stone. Marble floors typically cost $10 to $20 per square foot or materials alone, with some specialty marbles running as high as $40 per square foot. Ceramic tile is typically about half the cost of marble, although the cost of installation labor is fairly comparable.

Marble by Colors

What Are the Different Types of Marble?

Marble is easily one of the most luxurious natural stones. This is especially true considering how many different types there are. The natural beauty of this raw stone makes it a versatile choice for any indoor or outdoor remodeling ideas.

Marble is cut from specialized quarries where different slabs of the rock are sent to factories for further polishing. Since there are so many different types of marble, it’s important to sort them in a way that makes the most sense: by color.

White Marble


Negro Marquina

The most common type of black marble that most homeowners choose for their homes is the negro Marquina. This solid black stone has streaks of white veins across it, although some negro Marquina can be polished to be solid black. Originating from Basque, this is a highly sought-after color and type of marble.

Nero Portoro

This is the Italian counterpart to the negro Marquina, and it is just as bold and beautiful. This stone features a leopard pattern of gold and light creamy brown, making it appear like a natural mosaic.

Black Calacatta Marble

It is named because it resembles the white Calacatta marble, although this one features a black background and light grey streaks in varying patterns. This stone is quarried in Mexico and is typically used to build floors, walls, sinks, or pavement.

Marina Black Marble

This marble comes from Iran and is known for its distinctive veins. They are bright white and streak across the stone with sharp turns. It can be used for paving or for ornamental design.


Sasso Rosso Marble

This is a deep, Earthy red marble that is quarried in Italy. It is a gorgeous stone to decorate with and can be used for walls and floors as well. Build sinks or pool edging with this stone to add a rich touch of color to any interior and exterior design.

Domvrena Red Marble

Another marble that comes from Greece, is a popular choice for countertops in both kitchen and bathrooms. It can also be used in sinks and other structures. It sports spots of both light and dark reds, with patches of cream and light brown, smattered in. It is a great way to add a burst of energy and noise to an otherwise monotonous space.

French Red Marble

This is one of the deepest reds that marble can get. It is almost dark brown, especially depending on the way it’s processed. But it adds a deep richness to any color palette which can be broken up by the splashes of white that show up along the bold red.

Rosa San Marcos Marble

Another popular choice for countertops or floors. This is a red marble that is categorized because the veins that run through it are a deep red. The surrounding colors are a swirl of light red, pink, and creamy white. It can also be used for stairs, window sills, fountains, and mosaics.

Rojo Corralito

Rojo Corralito is a pale red, making it a good choice for homeowners using desert colors or living in a southwestern region of the country. This marble is known for its huge number of white streaks going through it, creating a unique map of reds and whites all blended together.


Dark Emperador

This is one of the most gorgeous selections of brown that you can choose from. It is a dark brown, which immediately speaks of elegance. It’s beautifully lined with light brown streaks that are thin and web-like, stretched across the background. It looks like a polished piece of earth that you can use in combination with almost any other color to complete the look of a room.

Light Emperador

Also, a type of Emperador marble is its lighter brown twin. This is also a beautiful piece of stone that can really elevate a space and make it look quite elegant. Use it as a countertop or to decorate your walls and floors.

French Brown Marble

This marble is quarried in India and is known for its deep black veins across a greyish-brown background. It is largely an ornamental stone, but still a popular choice for paving, walls, and floors. It can be finished in a number of different ways to highlight the color contrasts.


Amarillo Triana

Amarillo Triana is perhaps the most brightly colored marble in existence. It is a highly attractive yellow that shines brightly due to its fine grains. It has irregular streaks of dark yellow or grey that run across it, giving it a bit of personality. Most people choose a marble this bright for accent pieces or paving.

Spanish Gold

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Spanish Gold is a darker, bronzy-brown. It is one of the most popular choices for indoor use, especially when it comes to the pavement. This is because it already sports that natural earthy color that looks nice with any kind of finish. There are occasional streaks through it, but in general, the golden color is usually pretty uniform.

Yellow Siena Marble

From the Italian quarries in Siena comes yellow Siena marble. It’s fitting that its robust golden tones match the yellow hills of a Tuscany sunset. This bright yellow and golden brown combination blends with some cloudy veining to make for a truly dynamic piece. This is a versatile marble that can be used both for function and decoration.

Giallo Monforte Marble

Another Italian specialty, Giallo Monforte marble is a solid yellow stone that resembles the brightness of real gold. It can make an excellent addition to a kitchen where a bit of brightness and positivity is needed.


Marengo Grey Marble

This stone has almost a popcorn-like effect with light grey, dark grey, and creamy white mixed in. It sports a dark grey hue, unlike most grey marbles that are lighter in color. It is a great choice for paving floors or laying down new tiling indoors.

Mariah Grey Marble

This one has a beautiful smoky color and almost a completely solid shade of grey. It has a gradient of light to dark grey that comes out differently each time it is quarried. There are some light grey veins and textures that make each piece more different than the next.
