The Egyptian marble and granite were used historically in Egypt. During the Age of Ancient Egyptians, the granite was extracted from Upper Egypt and used in the construction of buildings as well as temples.
In addition, other cultures learnt from the Egyptian methods of extracting and cutting stones like the Ancient Romans in 3rd century B.C. Moreover, when the Romans took the knowhow of quarrying from Egypt, they transferred it to other places including Italy. Italy acquired the knowhow from the Romans and concentrated on developing the industry.
There are several kinds of natural stone in Egypt including marble, granite, alabaster, slate, crystalline limestone, and other ornamental stones.
Most of the marble types in Egypt have the beige color and its light and dark shades.
Egypt is known for the beige colored marble all over the world including: Galala, Rosa Cream, Sunny, Imperial Honey, and Silvia. The beige color is one of the most practical colors of marble globally for flooring and cladding indoors as well as outdoors.
Over the centuries marble has become synonymous with tradition and culture, capturing the essence of old-world charm. The varied textured pattern of marble tile and slabs creates a subtle, yet rich feel.
Marble surfaces have been adding this luxurious texture to architecture and interior design projects for years.
Due to their beauty and durability, they are considered to be a material of the highest suitability for a multitude of applications.
