Ordinary Masonry bit to drill marble?


I need to drill a 1/2" hole in the marble tile floor to anchor a pedestal sink. Can I just drill that with a standard masonry bit?

Thanks, Nate

Well, in case anyone's keeping score, it does work just fine. Tested it on a scrap, then went for it on the installed tile. No problems.
