Alabama White Marble

Did you know that different types of marble have different densities?

The more dense the marble, the less porous it is.

Higher density means less staining.

Alabama White (quarried just a few miles from where I live) is one of the whitest, densest, most beautiful marble types.

It is considered equal to the famous Italian Carrara (frequently misspelled Carrera) marble.

Alabama White marble was used in the Washington Monument.

The bust of Abraham Lincoln at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda? Also, Alabama White.

(I believe this is the right one, there are several marble busts of Lincoln at the Capitol building)

The Lincoln Memorial?  My source says that the ceiling is Alabama White. Not sure you can see it, though!

U.S. Supreme Court Building?  Interiors are full of Alabama White.

Here is a marble top I just received in Alabama White.

To go on this antique French garden table.

It will be permanently outdoors. I consider it a little slice of history to have Alabama White.

Alabama White is prized for its crystalline structure. It will be fine outdoors.

The {movement} is lovely and not too overwhelming.

For a table-top or small counter, ask your fabricator if there is a scrap piece
which is large enough. You will get a much better price than  a slab price.

Alabama White. From my Sweet Home Alabama.

    Did you create this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own personal site and want to learn where you got this from or what the
    theme is called. Kudos!
