Neyriz Crystal Marble
As its name implies, Crystal Marble Stone is a type of marble that has recrystallized over a long time by heat and pressure from molten, hot magma and formed large crystals. Its constituent crystals, often large and visible to the naked eye, distinguish crystal marble from sedimentary carbonate stone.
Headlines of this article:
The process of crystal marble formation is similar to that of metamorphic stones, so it is considered a limestone metamorphic stone. Minerals such as hematite, quartz, calcite, and wollastonite are the constituents of this type of stone. If the amount of quartz ore is high, then its hardness will be higher.
Features Of Crystal Marble Stone
The color of crystal marble stone is pure, white, and crystalline, and sometimes it has streaks and dark gray lines. The presence of dark and gray lines in this stone indicates the carbonaceous material in it.
When light hits this stone, due to its bright color and dazzling sheen, the light is reflected, so the use of crystal marble stone in the facade was usual in ancient times with the reflection of light, not much heat is absorbed and, the building was protected from high heat.
Even today, those who work professionally on crystal marble stones insist that this stone can still be used outdoors, but one of the weaknesses of this stone is the lack of proper adhesion and erosion in hot and cold climates. For this reason, this stone and marble in general are often used indoors.
Application Of Crystal Marble Stone
Because of the crystal`s specs, this type of stone is multipurpose and can be used in facades, walls, floors, stairs, etc.
Crystal Marble stone has high abrasion resistance and low water absorption (because of very low porosity), so it is used in places that are exposed to moisture, such as bathrooms.
Due to its natural and distinct veins, this stone is widely used as a slab and is used in Book-Matched & Four-Matched Slab designs on the wall and floor.
Owing to their crystalline nature and light color, crystal marble stones, like onyx stones, can transmit light to some extent, and this feature distinguishes them from others. It is also used as a kitchen cabinet and countertop.
Other uses of this stone include stairs, paving, interior decoration, and stone artifacts such as water fountains, stone tableaus, etc.
Crystal Marble Stone Slab
As mentioned, crystal marble stones are processed into slabs due to their distinctive lines and designs. They are used in floors and walls of bathrooms, paving of buildings, and kitchen countertops. The slabs of this stone are also used on the wall and floor in book-match and four-match designs.
Artificial Crystal Marble Stone
Artificial stone has now found a special place among building covering materials. In the meantime, due to the beautiful design and color of Crystal Marble stones, artificial stones including all kinds of marble sheet wall coverings have been produced, which are available to consumers at a lower price and easier installation.
Advantages Of Crystal Marble Stone
- Low heat absorption due to bright colors
- Resistance to water penetration due to low porosity (suitable for use in toilets)
- High compressive strength against various weather conditions
- Engraving capability
- Relatively good abrasion resistance (suitable for use in crowded areas)
- Very beautiful, uniform, and bright appearance
Disadvantages Of Crystal Marble Stone
- Lack of variety of designs and colors
- Low adhesion to travertine stones
In general, the disadvantages of this stone are less than its advantages. It is considered one of the best and most popular building stones.
Price Of Crystal Marble Stones
The price of crystal marble stone depends on various parameters, which are stated in the following list:
- Stone Quarry
- Color and transparency (the smoother surface, the higher the price)
- Thickness, dimensions, and size
- Type and quality of processing
