Tundra Grey Marble

Tundra Grey is a beautiful cool grey marble with white veins occasionally forming cloud-like patterning. Part of a family of grey stones from the region, Tundra Grey is a marble exhibiting higher density and greater strength than similar coloured limestone’s.

Tundra Grey also benefits from being a more consistent patterning providing greater uniformity when installed. This grey marble sits well in contemporary or traditional settings and the patterning exudes a sense of richness and luxury that only marble can achieve.

Used as slabs for cladding, benchtops, and Vanities, it can be carried through onto flooring in main areas, bathrooms, and even outside in tiles. Tundra Grey marble presents an elegant mid-grey that is easy to live with.

How Tundra Grey Marble Is Made & Where It Comes From

In selecting Tundra Grey marble, you are bringing into your space a work of natural art, eons in the making. Quarried in the steppes of Turkey, this limestone marble derives its name from the surrounding tundras. 

The stone itself is formed over millions of years and is formed from fossil-rich, sedimentary limestone. Buried within the Earth’s crust, the unique Marble of Turkey’s land experienced tremendous heat and pressure causing it to crystallise and transform into marble.

This metamorphosis causes the sedimentary calcite within the marble to crystallise, with silica impurities reacting in turn to cause diverse patterns of veining. For Tundra Grey, the unique makeup of the limestone and geologic pressures resulted in one of the most aesthetically pleasing marbles on the market.
