Marble Bathrooms and Flooring
We at Windsmere are proud to offer a wide range of natural marbles which are perfect for bathroom worktops and vanity units, shower wall cladding, bespoke shower trays and large slab flooring.
Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite and usually contains other minerals, such as clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite. Under the conditions of metamorphism, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes to form a rock that is a mass of interlocking calcite crystals.
Marble is usually a light-colored rock. When it is formed from a limestone with very few impurities, it will be white in color. Marble that contains impurities such as clay minerals, iron oxides, or bituminous material can be bluish, gray, pink, yellow, or black in color.
We also stock beautiful Rain Forest brown marble formed from petrified tree roots from the Brazilian rain forest formed millions of years ago,
