One of the most prized materials for countertops is Natural Marble Stone. Although the main reason for the popularity of the marble countertop is the beautiful appearance of the stone, there are many other properties that are signature to marble that make it an excellent countertop material.
If a marble countertop is cared for properly, it could easily last for a very long time in the same condition in which it was first fabricated. Ancient civilizations used marble stone to create statues that are still standing today.
Natural marble countertops are heat resistant to temperatures well above anything that may be used in the kitchen area and will not burn or catch fire, but the finish of the countertop may be damaged if hot items are placed directly on the surface of the countertop. For this reason, it is recommended that something that is also heat resistant, like a pot holder or a place mat, be placed between the surface of the countertop and the hot object to protect the finish of the countertop from the heat.
Because marble countertops are made from natural stone, they are also highly resistant to scratches, cracks, and breakage.
