“You won’t find anything as white in nature as white marble,” adds Evan Nussbaum, a vice president at Stone Source in New York. “You just don’t get that color and kind of figuring in any other type of natural stone.”
Good-quality marbles, such as the world-famous products from Carrara, Italy, are dense and relatively nonporous—which makes them durable and stain-resistant.
Marble does not stain, and does not become yellow with time, as it may happen with Quartz (engineered stone).
Marble will support hot pans on the surface and it is fire resistant, it will never catch fire.
As long as you choose carefully, know what to expect, and care for white marble countertops, they will be a beautiful, functional choice for your kitchen design that lasts a lifetime.
