Mega Marble - Stone

Marble, Granite, Limestone, Sandstone, Slate, Travertine, Onyx

Over the years we have built up an enviable portfolio of quarries and suppliers, people who understand us and know our demanding standards.

From the more well known material like Crema Marfil and Nero Zimbabwe to the more exotic, like Rosso Colemandina and Tunisian Black, we are able to source, fabricate and install to exact project specifications.

Working to tight budgets with specific materials or on the lookout for the unusual and rare, we work closely with all our clients to achieve dramatic results.

As well as our network of quarry sources, we also have established relationships with leading wholesalers of natural stone slabs in the UK. On smaller size or residential projects our clients can visit, view and select specific slabs from these suppliers for direct delivery to our factory for fabrication and installation.

Every piece of stone we acquire is unique in its own way. That is what makes it such a rewarding material to work. From selection, through every step of the fabrication and installation process, it rewards your efforts with wonderful results.

Know your stone

MARBLE: Marble is a metamorphic rock, produced by intense heat and pressure on limestone in the earths crust, a process that can take millions of years. Marble is renowned for its natural radiance and distinctive veining, qualities that give it a soulful, natural beauty and grandeur.

GRANITE: Granite is a coarse grained igneous rock containing large interlocking crystals randomly orientated. It contains a number of minerals which are pale grey or pinkish and quartz which is white or grey. It also contains small black specs of dark colour mineral

LIMESTONE: Limestone is elegant and durable. It is a sedimentary stone made out of the shells of marine organisms. Over thousands of years, pressure from water and sand solidify these into limestone rock. The summit of Mt. Everest is limestone - millions of years ago it was once an ocean floor.

SANDSTONE: Sandstone (sometimes known as arenite) is a clastic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized minerals or rock grains. Most sandstone is composed of quartz and/or feldspar because these are the most common minerals in the Earth's crust. Like sand, sandstone may be any colour, but the most common colours are tan, brown, yellow, red, gray, pink, white and black.

SLATE: Slate is a fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism. The result is a foliated rock in which the foliation may not correspond to the original sedimentary layering.

TRAVERTINE: Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, and cream-colored varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave.

ONYX: Onyx is formed of bands of chalcedony in alternating colors. It is cryptocrystalline, consisting of fine intergrowths of the silica minerals quartz and moganite. Its bands are parallel to one another, as opposed to the more chaotic banding that often occurs in agates.
