Mara Limestone

MARA LIMESTONE
Mara is often polished for counter tops and flooring or it can be “split faced” and used as wall stone. When honed or polished, the stone has a “mottled”, inconsistent appearance. This high density dolomite is made into polished marble or split into wall stone. The marble is light grey-brown with modulations of subtle blues and greens. Mara can take a high polish. Mara wall stone has a definite grey-green appearance with earthy rust colours intermittent throughout.
