The marble trend is seen everywhere right now, and not just the stone material itself. There is a lot of marbling going on, in fabrics, wallpapers, rugs etc. The name Marble is derived from the Greek “Marmareos”, which means glistening.
It was the favoured material for ancient Greek and Roman architects and sculptors. Marble was favoured for its durability, which is evident since fortunately lots of these ancient treasures have survived upto today.
