At The Reigate Marble Shop you’ll find a fantastic range of marble fireplaces and surrounds in a variety of stunning natural colours and patterns. Marble is a tough and durable rock with amazing natural beauty. It results from the metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks such as limestone or dolomite. However, the heat pressure that marble undergoes during the metamorphism makes it much tougher than limestone. Marble gets its colour from the base rocks that contribute to its formation, for example pure white marble is formed from a pure limestone or dolomite base. The dark swirls and veins of colour in some marble is the result of mineral impurities like clay, silt and sand that were present when it was formed. The natural toughness and durability of marble makes it ideal for use in bathrooms & kitchens. Marble vanity units, marble shower enclosures as well as bath surrounds, shelves and tiling make a beautiful addition to any home.
