A brilliant, warm white with subtle markings. The purest, most consistent and highest quality white marble in the world.

properties

Grafton is one of the finest marbles quarried today. Compact grain structure makes it relatively non-absorptive and frost-proof. Its excellent compressive and bending strength, weatherproof capacity, hardness and special brightness make it an historically prestigious stone and particularly well-suited to architectural uses. Like all marbles, Grafton is affected by acids. No detrimental effects on the environment. Large piece sizes are available.
