Dear shalu sachdeva

There are over 3000 varieties in marble stone available in the world market. Marble deposits are wide spread in India mainly in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh.
           Rajasthan is the main depository of marble in India accounts for over 90% of total marble production of the country, with reserves spread over the districts of Nagaur, Udaipur, Rajsamand, Banswara, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Sirohi, Bhilwara, Ajmer, Bundi, Alwar, and Pali. Some varieties  are given below:
Makarana Marble, the main sub-varieties are Kumhari, Doongri, Alberta, Chosira, Pahar Kuwan, Bhot, adanga marble, Makarana chalk, Abu white and Makaran White. Rajnagar Marble is the largest marble-producing area, having units located in the nearby town of Kishangarh to process the material produced. Agaria, Dolomitic,quartz is the best variety of this area. Andhi Marble located near the capital city of the state of Jaipur, the varieties are pista (pistachio) marble, One of the famous varieties of this area was known as Indo-Italian, owing to its resemblance with Satvario Marble. Most of the mining of this famous field is now banned by the Supreme Court of India. The other varieties are Peta Pasu, Uadepur green, Umer ( Bundi ) Jaislmer and Narnaul marble etc.
           In Gujarat, Amba Ji Marble and Baroda green etc. In Madhya Pardesh, Kattani Range and Jabalpur range are famous for marble stone.
           It is not hard and fast rule that costly marbles are more breakable. The hardness and breakage are according to the nature of the stone ore, its crystalline texture and its sound, dense and homogenous nature of stone.

Dear shiva
You can visit internet to find out the reliable companies that are offering high quality marbles. Bcoz there is no industry standard to judge a quality of marbles but there are some ways to catch the quality of marble.. like
  • If the back of the marble tile appears to be covered in a mesh or net, this marble is more fragile than others.
  • Examine the surface of the marble under a light, holding it at a 45-degree angle. If there are small, dull patches on an otherwise polished surface, the marble may have "fill" in small holes or    fissures in its surface.
  • Ask for the marble's complete name. Thasos AAA is a higher quality of stone than standard Thasos.
  • Consider the marble's hardness factor. If a stone has a high hardness factor it means it is a poor quality tile.

I have a big quantity of 20 mm polished slabs of a coloured marble, similar to Giallo Siena, with raisin and net on the back. Is it possible to grind them and polish them to 15 mm without breaking them?

Limestone -> Marble -> Granite these are the three grades. Limestone more porus than Marble. Marble porus compared to Granite. few additional factors related to marble usage. 1) a marble slab are available in diff. ranges. the one with few or no lines (the sediments) is treated as the prime quality. 2) application of liquid waterproofing coating below marble help avoid moisture from the slab or screed below getting into marble and decolouration. 3) Top surface coating solutions are available to make sure the quality of polish and marble finish remain excellent for long time. the minute pores in marble do absorb moisture or any other elements which can result in loss of finish , colour 4) Marbles can be used for cladding - use of SS cladding anchors or tile adhesive recommended than use of cement screed. 5) being a natural stone variation is very much there on marbles, so trial laying the tiles before fixing to make sure the variation dont effect the final look is always advised. specially when tiles are cut from diff. slabs
