How to detect the pros and cons of marble stone:

Marble is generally divided into three grades: first+ class, first-class and qualified. Such grade identification is determined through testing of instruments and measuring tools, and you can ask the manufacturer to produce a grade certificate.

Then carefully observe the surface gloss. After the marble is polished, the surface can produce mirror-like reflections. The brighter the mirror effect, the harder the stone, the higher density of the structure, and the better quality.

Striking the marble, the clearer the sound, the better quality:

You can knock on the stone with coins or other objects. The sound is crisper, which means that the hardness is high, the internal density is also high, and the quality of the stone is better.

If the sound is muffled, it means that the hardness is low or there are cracks inside, and the quality is poor.

Confirmation of the surface, whether there are cracks or bumps

Marble is a natural product. It is inevitable that there will be defects on the surface. A few holes are acceptable and can be repaired after polishing and filling.

But pls pay special attention to whether there are cracks or bumps on the marble surface.

Although marble is high in hardness, it is brittle. In the case of cracks, it is not easy to process it, and it also increases the difficulty of construction. During the process, larger cracks may occur, or even the whole piece is broken

Light-colored marble is recommended to be used on the wall

White or light beige marble has larger pores, higher water absorption, and softer hardness than darker marble. If you want to use it as a floor, you must take care of maintenance.

Therefore, for more convenient maintenance, it is recommended to use light-colored marble on decorative walls, such as TV walls and sofa background walls.
