About Marble

informatii marmura

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed mostly of calcite – a crystalline form of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and obtained through the metamorphosis of limestone. The most common marble colors are white, gray, beige, black and red. With the exception of some types of green marble, from a comercial point of view, the marble name can be given to any type of polished compact limestone, which includes most of the colored marble.

In our country, crystalline limestone or marbles can be found in the Fagaras Mountains, in Poiana Rusca Mountains and it is exploited in Ruschita and Alun. In Rodna massif there are white marbles wich used to be exploited at Vascau – Moneasa (closed for the moment) and polychrome marble can be found in the Apuseni Mountains.

Marble is a metamorphic rock, very dense, hard, fine-grained, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3) and obtained by the metamorphosis of limestone. It can be easily polished with spectacular results.

It shows very different aspects: from white to black, which provides perfect unicolor surfaces, to green or red with big white veins and so there are many soft and strong colors. For thousands of years, natural marble is used to decorate the interior and exterior spaces. Different types of beige marble were also regularry used, due to their warm and friendly looks.

Marble is used successfully in any kind of cladding: indoor or outdoor, horizontally or vertically, or to achieve decorative objects such as: tops, small furniture, fireplaces and other outsides. It is commonly used in light or medium traffic areas or environment, not in high traffic areas.

For a propper maintenance, avoiding staining or premature tarnishing of the marble there are recommended treatments with special washing detergents, sealing and / or wax.


It allows the “customizing” of space for functional purpose (through products such as: plywood floors, walls, facades, window sills, table tops, bathrooms, kitchens, fireplaces, railings, lighting auxiliary products such as mosaic, dust and the broken marble) and ornamental (by unique products such as tables crafted, fountains, columns, supports for flower tops fireplace, vase flowers, fruit, office services, carved statues, historic monuments and tombstones. It also allows underfloor heating.

Availability: Slabs și Plywood


Large quantities can be supplied in short periods, so we can adapt to both medium and large works.

In addition, we can deliver a wide range of colors and shades.

Material and product uniqueness

Nature always surprises us with its unique creations, by structure, venatura and color, so that natural stone can beat the expectations of most exsquisite tastes by making unique products.

  • polished
  • molding
  • scapitat
  • roughened
  • antique

Easy to assemble:

Both adhesives assembly and screed mounting can be used.

As advantages of the technology implemented, we find useful to mention: edge polishing quality, the achievement of a single piece of countertops, window sills, which also means less use of putty joints and added esthetical value.

When mounting the steps, we need to flatten the surfaces and equalize the steps.
