Rainforest Brown Marble:
Rainforest Brown Marble: This stone is also known as Bidasar Brown Marble. It is light brown and with heavily veined Serpentinite with dark brown veins.
Stonedepot proffers this beautiful stone for both commercial and domestic projects. Globally, it is nominated as marble, but around the application of the European Standard, this stone gets nominated as Serpentinite. The veining and colour may vary considerably, and a small sample of Rainforest Brown Marble may not represent the whole slab. Thus, swatch samples must be approved for large projects to ensure that the blocks are all extracted from the same quarry face for matching purposes.
During the polishing process, a clear epoxy resin filler can fill any micro fissures or tiny pitting. However, it does not affect the integrity of the stone since it merely provides an even and smoother surface finish. Rainforest Brown Marble is ideal for interior and exterior use; polish is only constant inside.
Products: Suitable for construction projects, both commercial and domestic, prefabricated countertops and worktops, vanities, tiles, backsplashes, paving, fireplaces, and memorials.
Surface Finish: Rainforest Brown Marble looks best with a gloss polished surface but is also available as honed, leather/satin, river-washed/antique, thermal/flamed, brushed, and sandblast finishes.
Sealing: Test with a small sample. It is possible that a sealant can be used on Rainforest Brown. Still, excessive attempts at sealing it could create a residue film build-up.
Block Sizes: This is a quarry yielding selectable grades of marble with blocks suitable for gangsaw size down to economical tile-sized blocks.
For commercial projects, it is important to ensure that blocks are selected from the same quarry face.
Stonedepot usually exports rough blocks however, intermodal containerization is available at extra cost. Finished products are packed into sea-worthy wooden crates and loaded into containers.
Quarry Location: Rainforest Brown Marble is quarried near Bidasar, Rajasthan, India. Several quarries of Rainforest Brown Marble, all varying in shade and veining.

Marble: A metamorphosed limestone composed of very pure calcium carbonate, CaCO3. The softness of marble and its relative isotropy and homogeneity make it desirable for sculpture and building stone. Although marble comes from limestone, the temperatures, and pressures necessary to form marble usually destroy any fossils that may have been present in the limestone.
Marble derives its name from the Greek marmaros, a shining stone. This stem is the basis for the English word marmoreal, meaning “marble-like”. In folklore, marble is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini. Pure white marble is an emblem of purity. It is also an emblem of immortality and an ensure of success in education.
Serpentine: Any of a group of hydrous magnesium-rich silicate minerals. The composition of these common rock-forming minerals approximates Mg3Si2O5(OH)4. Serpentinite is a rock composed of one or more serpentine group minerals. Minerals in this group are formed by serpentinization, a hydration and metamorphic transformation of ultramafic rock from the Earth’s mantle.
