Emperador Light Marble
The Emperador Light Marble product is widely used in construction and decoration, such as marble wall tiles, floor tile, slab, kitchen countertop, bar, table, kerbstone, carving and sculpture, tombstone, monument and washbasin.
The elegance transmitted by its light veins gives it a marked contrast with its intense tan, which allows it to easily combine with other materials, both light and dark to create beautiful sculptures, contributing to the architectural variety. The singularity of its marble appearance gives it great personality, and, in any case, is the culmination of an elaborate search process of originality and style.
