Micro Marble explained

Micro marble is the most popular choice of marble used for fireplaces today and outstrips natural marble in fireplace production and sales ten fold.

So what is this type of Marble?

It is a man made marble, consisting of finely ground real marble and other stone, mixed with resins, hardeners and other additives. Colour is added to the recipe and then it is mixed, before being poured into huge metal moulds. These are around three metres long, 1.2 metres high and 1.2 metres wide.

The mix is then left to harden, once set, the block of man-made marble, which weighs several tonnes, is removed from its mould and taken to huge gang saws, where it is sawn into sheets.

These three metre sheets are then taken to a finishing production line where they are calibrated, finished and polished. The sheets are then ready to be shipped to factories where they will be cut and fabricated into hearths and backs for fireplaces or complete fireplaces. Micro marble can be cut and worked far easier than real marble, and is just as hard and durable.

This man-made marble offers numerous colours, varying from near white to near black, with a large number of beige variations (the most popular). Some even have veins and mottles created within the stone. The best are difficult to tell from real marble. Most, unlike real marble are fairly plain, which goes well in today's fashion, and allows the marble to blend well with a great variation of décor
