|Article||San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2012 - Materials Marketing Limited (MML) has added Danby marble to their architectural stone and tile product line. The company is proud to offer clients this option in white marble. The stone is quarried in Vermont and is available for the customized manufacturing of architectural stone and tile products.
Mined from the Dorset Mountain, Danby marble is identifiable by its bright white hue and distinct veining. It is a stone with historic roots. It was used in the construction of the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Senate building as well as other state and federal landmark buildings and monuments.
“We are very excited about adding Danby marble to our materials selection.” said Jim Rymer, CEO of Materials Marketing. “The quality of this material, combined with our manufacturing capabilities, will present architects and designers the exciting possibility of adding a fashion forward, yet cost effective, stone finish to their projects.”
Danby marble is now available from Materials Marketing in a wide variety of architectural stone products such as fireplaces, staircases, window and door surrounds, as well as natural stone flooring, mosaics and moldings.
The Danby quarry is the largest in the world with a footprint that extends 25 acres and a depth that reaches over 1 and ½ miles. The massive size of the quarry enables the marble to be manufactured into large, monolithic architectural pieces.
