1 Natural marble is a metamorphic rock formed by high temperature extrusion during the use of the earth's crust. It is a medium-hard stone, mainly composed of calcite and dolomite. The main component is calcium carbonate, accounting for about 50%. The highest proportion of calcium carbonate is Guangbai white marble, accounting for 99%. In terms of physical properties, marble is relatively brittle, and some have dark cracks. Platinum is mostly used for interior decoration, such as walls, floors, background walls, and dining tables.

The marble used for the desktop will be reinforced with glue nets in order to strengthen the bottom plate. The main outdoor products are sculptures, railings, and architectural monuments. The characteristic is long service life.

Quartz stone is the hardest among many stone materials, with a hardness as high as 7.5 on the Mohs scale. With a melting point of 1300 degrees, it is a high-grade fire-resistant material and is mainly used in kitchen countertop materials. Because stone is more popular, quartz stone is separated from artificial stone.
