Marble is used extensively around India and, in particular, around Rajasthan – the large state in the north of the country where marble artisans have been carving this versatile, beautiful stone for generations. Used by all levels of society, Indian marble is tough and can cope easily with being left outside in the weather or molly-coddled inside!
