In the past, marble was of such value that the regions that produced it had the possibility of becoming large commercial centers and even colonizing other regions. The Greek island of Paros, a source of very high quality marble during Antiquity, developed in part thanks to the sale of this material. This was used for the creation of famous works such as the statue of Venus du Milo, which can be seen today in the Louvre. Due to their completely natural origins, all marble pieces are different both in their nuances and in their decoration. It is one of the most interesting and esteemed characteristics of the stone.

Marble is a stone that contains minerals and, in particular, iron. The design of a bathroom with this stone is therefore always linked to a risk of rust development on marbled surfaces. For this reason, it is important to make sure that the coverings and objects you choose will be able to tolerate the humidity in the room. The advice of specialists on this matter is to conduct a test as follows: Take a small piece of marble of your choice and place it in a container filled with water for two days. At the end of this period, let it stand for two more days and examine its surface for color changes or any other sign of rust..
