It’s that time of year again, folks! March Madness! Here at Boston Stone Restoration, we have our own kind of competition… March MARBLE Madness! With restoration techniques for 16 different types of stone in our arsenal, how do we pick a winner?
Here’s a little information about a few of the different marble types, maybe you can help us choose!
White Carrara : One of the most iconic luxury Italian marbles that can be found in shades of white and grey. Carrara marble is offered in both polished and honed finishes, with a wide variety of floor tiles, wall tiles, and mosaics available to create stunning marble accents throughout any residential or commercial project.
Imperial Danby : Quarried in Vermont with light to medium veining ranging from soft grey to gold. A top notch solution for kitchen countertops or shower and vanity projects.
Crema Marfil : A textured creamy beige stone with soft veins of color ranging from yellow to cinnamon to white and gold. Popular with many architects and designers, Crema Marfil is actually a type of limestone and is quarried in Spain.
Travertine : Formed in hot springs and limestone caves, Travertine has been used for centuries. Most notably, Travertine was used in the building of the Coliseum! Due to its durability, it’s a favorite for use in floors that will see heavy traffic and is harder in nature than true marble.
Tennesse Pink : A pinkish-gray limestone found only in East Tennesse, it’s a favorite amongst architects and builders for its color and how easily it can be polished. Tennesse Pink can also be found in numerous buildings and monuments throughout the United States, including the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. and parts of the United States Capitol.
Jerusalem Gold : A golden beige limestone quarried in Israel that’s great for kitchen countertops, Jerusalem Gold is a favorite of interior designers to add a sense of rustic beauty.
