What are Natural Marble and Artificial Marble?

Natural marble is a metamorphic rock formed by the original rock in the crust through the action of high temperature and high pressure in the crust. Its main component is mainly calcium carbonate, accounting for more than 50%. The texture of natural marble is dense but not very hard, and it is easy to process, carve and smooth, polish, and so on. After the marble is polished, it is smooth and delicate, the texture is natural and smooth, and it has a high decorative effect. In addition, marble has low water absorption and high durability, and could be used for 40-100 years.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Natural and Artificial Marble:

First of all, natural marble has its natural veins, these beautiful veins are gifts of nature, giving people a noble inner beauty, which artificial marble never has.

How to Identify Natural and Artificial Marble?

First, we could look at the veins. Each piece of natural marble has a unique natural vein and color. Secondly, the transparency of natural marble is high. When we illuminate the back of the marble with a lighter or a flashlight, we would find that it has very high transparency. Another method is to add a few drops of dilute hydrochloric acid. Because natural marble is incompatible with acidic substances, natural marble would foam violently when encountering dilute hydrochloric acid, while artificial marble would foam weakly or not.

The Production Process of Marble Sculptures:

Marble sculptures for sale from Mily factory are made from a single block of natural marble. We first select a piece of high-quality natural marble for cutting. After cutting the marble into the right size with a machine, the master carvers began to carve by hand with carving tools. They highly restored the designer’s original work with their superb carving skills. After the carving is completed, it needs to be polished to make the sculpture as delicate and perfect as possible.

The steps of making marble sculptures seem to be simple, but they are actually very labor-intensive, because carving is delicate and relatively long work, and the masters often need to devote themselves to it. Therefore, exquisiteness and a high degree of reduction have always been the biggest features of the marble sculptures for sale at Mily factory. For example, our marble four-season statues for sale, white marble fountains, marble religious statues, etc. are well received by customers for their fine carving and high quality.

Marble Sculptures Maintenance:

First of all, marble sculptures should not be placed in extremely humid or extremely dry rooms. Like people, marble sculptures are exposed to the sun and are prone to “heat stroke”. So don’t put marble sculptures in windows. Secondly, do not wipe with a towel with water when cleaning, it is advisable to wipe with a pure cotton towel containing wax or grease. For example, dipping some walnut oil and gently rubbing it on the surface of a marble sculpture could achieve the desired glossy effect.
