Guatemala Green Marble
The Guatemala Green Marble is one of the marbles we export, one of the highest quality. It has beautiful structures that allow the user to use it with different uses, such as worktops, tops, tables, wall coverings, floors, in the designs of marble floorboards and many more.
There are also granites with green tones, but they should not be confused. The tonalides provided by the real Green Marble Guatemala are unique.
