    I have heard that crema marfil tile is difficult to cut - because of the veining & the softness of the marble it breaks & cracks easily. Is there any trick to cutting and installing it?

    Dear Maris, please watch this video I think this will help you out

    We have the crema marfil counter top in our bathroom and we have noticed some spots and can't remove them (we think its from the toothpaste). Any cleaning product recommendations or will we need to have it polished?

    Hi Arthur. You can use the Crema Marfil as a table top, it should hold up nicely. I recommend to go with the standard 1 1/4 inch countertop thickness for strength and integrity. Seal the table top when you receive it so it becomes stain resistant. Best of luck!

    Can I use this as a console table top?. Can it come in a thickness of 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches?

    Polished no fill. Can I seal it?

    Good Morning. I do not think it's risky or inappropriate to use Crema Marfil marble for a shower walls application. If the marble is sealed upon installation, then you should not have anything to worry about in terms of maintenance. If this was for a kitchen application then it's a different story because in a kitchen there are common staining agents such as sauces, juices, wines ect, while in a bathroom generally only soap and water will affect the surface of the marble which is not dangerous to the stone in any way. Hope this helps!

    I am contemplating tiling my shower room walls in Crema Marfil. Is it too risky to take the Crema Marfil into the shower enclosure walls please ?

    Hello. We import only premium quality Crema Marfil slabs so all of our Marfil marble is the same in terms of quality.

    how much would it cost for a 40,000 sq ft house?

  • - Derek 02:46PM, Mar 30 2012

    Yes, polished marble needs to be sealed at least once a year to stay stain resistant. Hope this helps.

    Does polished marbil need to be sealed?  I'm about to use the crema marfil as a backsplash in my kitchen (2x4 polished tile set subway style)  They yummy cream colors blend so well with the granite countertop.

  • - Derek 07:47PM, Dec 23 2011 I recommend to have a honed marble floor tile finish, if you're going to use this stone as a floor tile. Polished marble tiles can be higher maintenance and attract water spot stains. Make sure to reseal the stone at least once a year.

    Is it a better look on floor or easirer on floor spots if it is honed or polished?
  • - Derek 07:45PM, Sep 28 2011 Since marble has already been subjected to a tremendous amount of heat during its formation, the normal amount of heat generated by a fireplace should have no effect upon the material. I recommend to seal the hearth upon installation to make sure the marble stays stain resistant. Good luck!
  • Barbara 11:22PM, Sep 27 2011 As a fireplace hearth, would this marble be more prone to stain?
  • Melissa 03:11PM, Sep 16 2010 Does this marble (compared to the 'Classic' version) have areas requiring..filler?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:34AM, Sep 17 2010 Melissa: We have one type of Crema Marfil and it does not contain filler.
  • Mina 07:23AM, Jul 7 2010 I have had polished Crema Marfil in my kitchen on my countertops and backsplash for 2 years. I absolutely love it and I am so glad I went with it. It etches instantly citrus juices, tomatoes, vinegars etc. basically acids are spilled or dripped. The etching can be removed if it wiped off pretty quickly. Acids that have been allowed to sit for awhile have a deeper etch so they will shine back up but you will be able to see the damaged area in certain light ie: sunlight from window bending over looking for it. (Not one person has ever visited and noticed the deeper vinegar etch my father in law caused. ) LIght etching is totally removed with a kit that I bought from that has a marble polishing compound. Before I found this I was worried that over time it would be a mess. Every 4 months or so I spot checked with this and my counters are still like new. ( I do have children so they have to be reminded to wipe up spills etc) We are wine drinkers and red wine etc doesn't etch or stain ours. Actually I have had no staining problem with mine. I even used wilton gel food coloring in my fondant and kneaded and rolled it on it and it wiped right off with no problem. I have butcher block on one of my counters so this is my prep station. They are definately more work than others but with a little knowledge of what works they are beautiful. I originally wanted honed like old world Italian kitchen but no company would sell it to me like that. Just my experience
  • Jeannie 06:48PM, Jul 3 2010 Is this doable for a kitchen in a polished slab?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:49AM, Jul 5 2010 Jeannie: The Crema Marfil is a rather soft and porous stone, I would not recommend it for a kitchen application.
  • Christine S 10:19AM, Dec 22 2009 I was wondering a price for a 50" vessel sink vanity top in the Crema Marfil
    • All Granite and Marble 10:32AM, Dec 22 2009 Christine S: Please contact the sales office.
  • Karen 11:10AM, Aug 17 2009 Is it a better look or easier on spots if it is honed on polished?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:13AM, Aug 17 2009 Karen: Polished is easier maintenance.
