1, Marble stone can be scratched with a knife or nail, but granite stone is not easy to be traced by these. Because the hardness of granite is 6 to 7 and the marble is only 3-5, the marble is soft and the granite is hard.
2, stability difference
Marble stability is not as stable as granite. Therefore, marble is easily deteriorated under the influence of sunlight, rain, wind and ultraviolet rays, and granite is difficult to change.
3, Differences in chemical reactions
Marble is more afraid of chemicals, and granite is relatively stable. Marble is particularly afraid of acid and alkali chemicals, its acid and alkali resistance is particularly poor, this characteristic determines that the kitchen countertops are best to use granite instead of marble.
4, the difference between defects
Marble has various stone defects such as cracks, crystal spots, holes, and chromatic aberration, while granite is relatively good. The flaws in marble determine that marble is suitable for interior decoration and is less used for outdoor and high-altitude decoration. Otherwise, once the marble falls due to cracks, the consequences are unimaginable.
5, the difference in wear resistance
Marble wear is poor, while granite is just the opposite. Therefore, marble is less used in the entrance of buildings, public places, otherwise the marble surface is very easy to wear and tear, loss of luminosity.
6, the difference in resistance to deformation
Marble is easy to change, and granite has strong resistance to deformation.
7, the difference between weathering phenomenon
Marble is prone to fading, fading, weathering and other phenomena. This heat determines that marble should not be used as a decoration for common outdoor light and rain. Otherwise, after a period of wind and rain, it will lose its beauty.
8, the difference in strength
The strength of the marble is low and the strength of the granite is high. This feature determines that the floor decoration is best to use granite instead of marble. Marble is more suitable for indoor use, and granite is more suitable for outdoor use.
The texture of marble is more natural and beautiful, and the relative granite is simpler and simpler. In terms of aesthetics and decoration, marble is more economical.
