Maharaja Green marble is part of the family of green marbles from India. Hard and brittle, it is very difficult to carve. Maison & Maison suggests only using this marble for your custom-made mantel in combination with gilded bronze or electroplated ornaments.
This marble is very similar to Antique Green marble from Greece. An Empire style antique mantel was carved in Antique Green marble for the Green Room of the Hotel de Beauharnais in Paris.
Indian green marbles come from the state of Rajasthan, in the region of Keshariyaji near Udaipur. They dominated the market for green marble during the 1990s, at a time when large quantities were being quarried and exported worldwide. They are used predominantly in architecture, but they are also used for many small decorative objects and mosaics.
