Marble: timeless elegance
Marble is one of the most luxurious natural stones and has a long history as a versatile building material. The name "marble" comes from the Greek word "mármaros", which means "shining stone". White Carrara and Nero Portoro are two of the best known types of marble, which are often used in jewelry and watches. White Carrara, from the town of the same name in Italy, is known for its distinctive gray veins on a white surface. Nero Portoro is an elegant black marble.
