What are the Different Types of Indian Marble?

Marble is considered to be a luxurious natural stone that never goes out of style. Hence there is huge demand and consumption of both marble slabs and pre-polished ready-to-fix marble tiles in India. There are rich marble deposits in the states of Rajasthan, which accounts for the huge production of marble in India; the other marble-producing states of India include Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Learn about some popular types of marble that are exclusively quarried from the mines of India.

Indian marble is available in numerous varieties, vein patterns and colors, such as white, yellow, beige, green, black and brown. One can experiment with different types of marble to create designs by combining marble slabs or tiles of different colors, shapes and patterns.
