Marble in Dubai UAE

Marbles and granites have always been a symbol of excellence, luxury, royalty, personality, the taste of beauty, and elegance. When we talk about marbles and granites, then the first thing which comes to our mind is vivid shades, beautiful patterns, various colors, and amazing designs. Though marbles and granites look similar, this is a misunderstood concept because marbles and granites are two different stories. The biggest difference between them is their porosity. Generally, marbles are more porous and soft with few exceptions, and granite is an igneous rock, which means it was once molten and formed as it cooled deep within the earth.
