A world of natural stone and marble

The name Fonte Dei Marmi translates from Italian into Fountain (or source) of Marble, and although we have hitherto been supplying marble and natural stone, it has been very much under-represented on the Fonte Dei Marmi website. Well, no more. From today (7th January 2010), Fonte Dei Marmi are very pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new natural stone and marble section of the website.

There are literally millions of different rocks on this planet, and that means there are probably millions (at least, tens of thousands) of different natural stones that can be derived from them. What makes it difficult of course is A) locating those stones, B) extracting them, and C) having enough variety of stones to make the world interesting.

We can’t claim to have all of them on the website now, but we do have well over 800 which is a pretty good start, and that represents only a small amount of the stones that we can source for you. There are more coming and the site will be updated on a regular basis.

The first update to the website will include semi-precious and precious stones, but for the time being, there are Granites, Marbles, Travertines, Onyxes, Breccaias and Limestones to keep everyone amused … each one has high-quality images and information on available sizes of slab and tiles. All products come directly from the quarries around the world, and can be cut to custom sizes and shapes as required.

We hope you enjoy the range, and look forward to having the opportunity to discussing them with you. If you would like to take a look at the stones for real, we have samples of most of them in the showroom. Also on hand at the showroom is Pilar, our stone specialist whose knowledge of natural stones and marble knows almost no bounds … with 15 years experience to call upon, it would be wise to pick her brains.
