Milestone & Marble
As Milestone, the products we offer you, inspired by nature, actually come from the nature itself. Pavers, tiles, mosaics and the others are actually hidden treasures that lie deep in nature. Let's take a look at marble, one of the natural stones applied in every corner of your homes, offices or around the garden and pool.
From a geological point of view, marble consists of calcium carbonate minerals. These minerals crystallize under different temperatures and pressures. Thanks to this crystallization, a riot of colors and veining occurs in the marble. In addition to its naturalness, it has a perfect shine after being processed and polished by skilled hands. In fact, the word marble is etymologically derived from the Ancient Greek word "marmaros", meaning shining stone. Marbles have different mineralogical, chemical and structural properties depending on the conditions during formation. For this reason, they are classified in different ways. For example, solid marble has a compact appearance, fine and coarse grained. Laminal marble, which is another type, has the appearance of colored stripes and its fine-grained strips contain different minerals or elements.
Marble is one of the natural stones that has been processed and used by people for thousands of years throughout history. It is found in many artifacts built in the pre-BC period. Although the types of marbles used in these works are very diverse, it is noteworthy that their sizes are very large. Marble is frequently encountered in historical, ancient temples, marble statues, palaces, Egyptian pharaoh tombs, pyramids, city walls, castles, stadiums and open-air theatres. It has been used in sculpture, architecture and decoration since ancient times. In Roman civilization, we witness the transformation of marble into a work of art in ancient Greek cities. In Renaissance, do you know that the statue of David Michelangelo, one of the most
famous ones in history, is made of marble? This natural stone, which has not lost its popularity until today, continues to decorate the walls or floors of our living spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, pools and gardens.
Marble is very solid and provides long-lasting use. As long as there is no pressure impact, it provides high resistance against external factors. It is a stone that is resistant to the abrasive effect of water, heat and freezing in winter. Since there are many different types, less water-absorbent marbles may be preferred on kitchen counters, bathrooms and pool sides.
Natural & Pure
Although it has a wide variety of colors, white, gray, black, green and brown tones are the most common colors of marble stone. Thanks to this variety of colors, it creates human-like feelings such as purity, freedom and elegance in the environment it covers. It provides a simple and elegant appearance with thin or thick veins that formed naturally.
The formation of marble is completed in a long time. During this time, the structural pores are filled with rich components, resulting in a natural and healthy material. The organic structure of marble provides natural resistance against elements such as germs, bacteria and mold. In addition, thanks to its smooth surface, stains are easily cleaned.
