A great article comparing the different qualities of granite and marble!
While comparing marble to granite, we find that not only is granite stronger than marble. It does not lose its polish after long term exposure to water and does not easily stain in the presence of food acids like fruit juices, coffee, and wine like marble does.
On the other hand, marble is more aesthetically dramatic and beautiful. While granite comes in almost every colour imaginable, it has a relatively uniform look across a slab. Marble has a random variety of color swirls and veining, often including crystal pockets. And while it may not be as strong and versatile as compared to granite it is still a very strong stone, the majority of buildings from ancient Rome and Greece which still stand to this day is testament to that fact.
Let’s review which of these elegant stones are more suitable in the various parts of your home.
