In recent years, in addition to general home decoration materials, more and more new materials have been poured into the market. Today, let’s analyze the difference between natural stone and these materials.

Rock plate



No.1 appearance


Marble texture changes and other materials can not be reproduced. Marble is created by nature. Each piece has a unique natural texture and color, with various changes and round and diverse colors.

ceramic tile

The ceramic tile is produced by template, and the pattern is easy to repeat, rigid, and unnatural.

Rock plate

The texture is close to marble, but the pattern is rigid and lacks the spirit of natural stone. At present, there are few rock plate lines on the market, and the color is mainly black-and-white gray.


It is made of a variety of crushed stones. It has rich appearance colors and patterns, but it can’t be as pure as marble.

No. 2 material

The service life and cost performance of marble is unmatched by other materials


Marble has a strong sense of jade quality, is not easy to deform, is not magnetized, and has good wear resistance. Even though it has been renovated many times, it is still as bright as new and has a long service life, but there are certain pores in marble, so it needs to pay more attention to maintenance.

The texture of the ceramic tile is only on the glaze of the surface, and its wear and tear can not be repaired after renovation.

Rock plate

The rock plate has high wear and corrosion resistance and can be recycled, but the rock plate is brittle, explosive, easy to fracture, flexible, easy to bend and deform, hard and difficult to process.


Terrazzo has high hardness and strong wear resistance, but the raw materials are acidic and the corrosion resistance is relatively poor. There are many gaps in the middle of the terrazzo floor, which is easy to accumulate dirty things and has strong waterproof permeability.

No.3 comparison of characteristics of four materials

  1. type

The types of natural stones are very rich and distributed all over the world. Through modern logistics, they are concentrated in some important stone markets. The selectivity of customers is very high, while there is still a gap in other materials in this regard.

2. Rich texture

The performance of the natural stone in these four aspects will be more excellent.

No. 4 other differences

Although other materials are also customized, they are still limited; In addition, stone can be made into various special-shaped products, such as carving, arc plate, etc., which can not be compared with other materials.
