Marble is also among one of the most beautiful stones available in the market today and comes in quite a large variety of colors. It is a relatively hard material, but it is not as hard as MN granite. MN Marble countertops are also quite popular, especially for bathroom vanities and fireplace surrounds. Depending on the environment marble is in, there is a chance of staining.
With proper care and maintenance, marble is relatively easy to maintain. It is composed of calcite or dolomite and is easily worked. Marble is a metamorphic limestone, or dolostone and is classified as any crystalline calcareous rock that will take a polish. Through the ages, it has been used primarily as a building and ornamental stone, and for monuments, tabletops, and other decorative applications. Very few are approved for exterior use.
Limestone also offers a unique look. It is great to use for fireplace surrounds, but use caution when recommending it for kitchen countertops, and bathroom vanities.
Minnesota limestone is the softest natural stone available and therefore the easiest to stain and scratch. It is extremely porous and therefore use of an acrylic based sealer (which adds a sheen to the appearance) is recommended to protect it.
Onyx is made up of a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz, and is made up of bands, which are parallel and regular. Its appearance is most striking when the bands are of sharply contrasting colors.
Onyx is often considered a gemstone. It is one of the most striking and beautiful stones, but is fragile. It is popular for jewelry, vases, and figurines. It can be used for fireplace surrounds, table tops, bar tops, etc., but may scratch easily.
