Marble is rarely used on kitchen countertops due to its soft and porous nature.
* Stains and scratches easily.
* A porous material, marble requires proper periodic resealing with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining.
* Heat- and water-resistant.
* Works well in very small areas for specific tasks, such as rolling out pastry dough.
* Available in honed, matte, and polished finishes.
