The elegance of marble has been known throughout antiquity, with marble now symbolizing the greatness of European civilization during the Roman Empire.

Quartzite is an extremely durable material, even more so than granite. However, due to it's difficult quarrying processes and exoctic nature, Quartzites are extremely difficult to obtain.


Onyx is a very "glassy" material that resembles a transparent, highly glossy marble. Its popular applications include tabletops, furniture pieces, and back-lit backsplashes. 


Schist is most notably used as a durable, substitute for slate soapstone, or limestone in the kitchen. The most popular type is Pietra Cardoso. It resembles a very soft slate, yet has a durability comparable to granite.


Travertine is similar to limestone. However, it is more porous and often more brittle. As compared to a typical limestone, travertine has more movement and natural blemishes. 


Soapstone is relatively soft, and may feel soapy when touched, hence the name. Soapstone is used for inlaid designs, sculpture and for kitchen countertops and sinks.
