In fact, not all stone materials are suitable for making mosaics. Because some stones are too hard and some are easily damaged, only some stones are very suitable for making mosaics. Among them, the most popular and used by everyone is marble mosaic. Because marble is very soft, it is easy to cut into small sizes, and it is not easy to break. At the same time, marble also has a rich variety of colors to choose from. The most important thing is that the factory can choose small-size raw materials to make mosaics, which not only saves costs, but also produces a lot of beautiful mosaics.
