Dolomitic Marble Varieties

Why Are Dolomitic Marbles So Special?

Dolomitic marbles look as stunning as “regular” marble types, but their unique mineral composition of mostly Dolomite, Pyroxene, and Calcite makes them denser and more durable. Dolomite is less porous than regular marble so it stands up better to liquids and stains, but still requires routine sealing and treatment to preserve its appearance.

If you prefer to use two different kinds of natural stone in your project, such as soapstone kitchen countertops and a dolomitic marble center island, we’re happy to discuss design ideas and options. We also carry different dolomitic marble thicknesses for projects requiring a measurement of 2 or 2 1/2 inches and offer polished, leathered, or honed surface finishes to suit your preferences.
