Boston Stone Restoration restores marble. There are few building materials in the world that endure time, fashion, geopolitical upset and demand fluctuations as well as marble has. It’s no wonder that once you own marble, its very presence adds permanence and value. A visually stunning New York Times Magazine article took a look at the marble quarries of Italy, their histories and impact. It’s a great read even if you are not marble obsessed!

“Rarely has a material so inclined to stay put been wrenched so insistently out of place and carried so far from its source; every centimeter of its movement has had to be earned.” ~
