Transform Your Space with Natural Marble
Marble is one of the most beautiful and versatile materials used in construction, architecture, and design. Its rich veining color makes it a stunning addition to any home or business, and though it looks elegant and fragile, it’s surprisingly durable. At Moreno Granite & Marble, we specialize in supplying and installing the highest quality marble products to meet any home or business owner’s needs.
A Timeless Classic
Marble is a timeless natural stone that has been utilized for ages as the chosen design material for opulent palaces, massive coliseums, and statues of cultural significance throughout history. It is an incredibly strong and durable material that is known for its unique beauty and elegance. It can also be polished to a very high shine by using progressively finer abrasives.
Marble adds a luxurious look to any home or business and can be used in so many ways:
- fireplace mantels
- even decorative accents like coffee tables.
Maintaining Your Natural Stone
Here at Moreno, we pride ourselves on educating our clients on the care of their new stone. Marble does require some maintenance because it’s porous and sensitive to calcium carbonate. Sealing the surface aids in stain resistance but it doesn’t make it stain-proof. Dark liquids, like red wine, should be wiped up right away. And, if you are using or prepping anything that can transfer color, you should utilize cutting boards, coasters, or other barriers. When water no longer beads on the surface, it is a good idea to reseal it.
Marble should be frequently cleansed of dirt and debris, and only non-abrasive cleaners should be applied. If a stain occurs it can usually be removed with spot-cleaning solutions.
Whether you’re looking for a timeless classic or a modern statement piece, Moreno Granite and Marble has the perfect option for you. We are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality products and the best customer service in the industry.

The Geology of Marble
When limestone is exposed to heat and pressure, marble is created as a metamorphic rock. Mineral calcite, often known as calcium carbonate, makes up the majority of it. Calcite in the limestone recrystallizes during metamorphism forming a tangle of interlocking crystals. On the Mohs Hardness Scale, a measurement of a material’s resistance to scratching, marble often scores a 3 or 4 out of 10, depending on the mineral makeup. Mineral deposits, such as those containing mica, quartz, and iron oxides, are what give the stone its characteristic feathery veins of impurity.
