Rainforest Brown Marble: An Introduction
Rainforest Brown, also known as Bidasar Brown Marble, is comparatively more durable as compared to other marble variants and widely appreciated for its elegant looks. The surface of this marble has light to medium-dark brown shades with accents of white and interwoven, tree-like branching of veins of deep brown hues that randomly runs through the surface.
With its ability to boost the aesthetics of any surrounding, Rain Forest Brown is in great demand across the globe. Moreover, its responsiveness to polishing is remarkable, which eventually enhances the texture and appeal of this marble. Available in the form of slabs, tiles and blocks, this marble is used in countertops, wall cladding, flooring, fountains, pools, and other interior and exterior designing.
Depending upon the blocks from which it has been extracted, the veining pattern and density of this marble may vary in different lots. Therefore, book-matching is done, wherein two slabs are cut in a way to create mirror images of each other. The slabs are further kept in sequence to ensure a continual flow of pattern. Occurrence of voids is a natural phenomenon in this marble; hence a polyester resin is applied to fill the gaps before polishing, which eventually doesn’t affect the durability and attractiveness of this marble. So that it keeps shining like a new for years to come, sealing is done in the final stage of its processing.
