Dark Emperador marble from Spain
Emperador is very popular in Pittsburgh homes. We highly recommend this stone. It is rugged and seems to handle traffic well. What we have found is that lower grade emperadors tend to have some veins that won’t polish. We don’t recommend the large national hardware stores as they tend to sell low grade Emperador at fairly high pricing.
