Marble is a metamorphic rock whose main element is limestone, exposed to the high temperature and pressure of the Earth’s interior. In general, it has a uniform color, with marked and elongated veins, forming a more abstract design.

It’s more porous, so it can get dirty more easily and not withstand high temperatures. It is composed of a greater number of veins, which makes it less resistant compared to granite. And because they have a smaller granulometry, they tend to have greater uniformity in color.

Advantages of Marble

  1. Offers an air of refinement and sophistication to the environment.
  2. Ideal for bathrooms and places where the stone will not have access to grease.
  3. It is possible to find it in uniform colors, which is considered an aesthetic advantage.

Disadvantages of Marble

  1. They cannot be used in kitchens – as they are very porous, they cannot withstand the high temperatures of pans.
  2. Care must be taken in humid environments, as this can lead to problems such as water absorption and the formation of stains.
  3. It is the least resistant among the three stones.
  4. Due to the uniform colors in which it appears, it is an expensive stone.
  5. It is less shiny and more fragile than granite – marble scratches very easily.
  6. Contact with oil, fat, lemon or vinegar, for example, will easily stain the stone.


It is a plutonic acid igneous rock of quartz-feldspathic composition. It has a more rigid composition, tends to stain less and is less porous than other stones.

Each block has a peculiar design of stains and veins – the granite surface has a more punctual pigmentation, and the difference in color appears in dots, not spots.

Gray, black and brown granites are the most common.

Advantages of Granite

  1. Best material in terms of cost-effectiveness.
  2. As it is more rigid, the stone tends to stain less and is less porous than marble and quartz.
  3. It is available in many colors. The toughest are the darkest.
  4. It is advisable for the outdoor environment as it is a very rigid stone, but it also works very well in indoor areas, such as kitchen sinks, facades and bathrooms.

Disadvantages of Granite

  1. In external environments, it is important to apply a non-slip material to avoid accidents, since it is a very smooth stone.
  2. Even though it is more resistant than marble, granite can stain if exposed to grease or certain cleaning products.


Synthetic stone composed of 95% quartz and 5% silica, resin and polymers, it is slightly harder than granite.

It has few variations in veins and stains, it is a smoother, more uniform, homogeneous and less porous stone than marble. As the production of this material is synthetic, it is possible to manufacture it in several colors, making it a great option for decorating with boldness. Quartz is quite resistant to stains and scratches, reflecting a higher market price.

Advantages of Quartz

  1. It can be used in various ways and in various types of decoration.
  2. As it is a synthetic material, it is possible to manufacture it in various colors and formats.
  3. It is quite resistant to stains, scratches and temperatures.

Disadvantages of Quartz

  1. As quartz is a synthetic material, it is also the most expensive among the three stones.

It all depends on the need for the space, the intensity of the intended color and veins, the combination with other architectural and decorative elements that make up the environment, resistance to the weather, conservation and maintenance.
