Marbella Shellstone Appearance -
Marbella is a stunning natural stone infused with ancient coral, colored shells and visual fossils. The different fossils that can be found in Marbella date back thousands of years & can be found in virtually every piece. It has a light sandy beige tone, which remains consistent throughout the whole quarry. We could match a Marbella Tile that was produced over 10 years ago with a Marbella Tile that was quarried last month. The popularity of this stone can be attributed to its oceanic characteristics, which makes it very desirable for areas located along coastal regions.

Marbella Shellstone Installation & Maintenance -
Marbella tiles and pavers are cut perfectly rectified & calibrated so they can be installed with no grout joints (butt-joints). Because Marbella’s tone and characteristics are consistent with every piece you wont have to worry about replacements a few years down the road. This isn’t the case with many Travertine or Pre-Cast pavers due to the fact that those lines are always changing. Marbella pavers are perfect for patios, gardens and pool decks because of its very low heat absorption. It won’t get burning hot like travertine, flagstone, and concrete pavers after sitting in the sun all day.
When Marbella is properly sealed with a simple Miracle Sealant it won’t leave stains. Nor will it allow any growth of mold or mildew (fungi) to occur. Beyond that, Marbella is just more compact with less pores & voids in comparison with other Shellstones.
