marble tile


I am wanting to place white marble tile with a grey accent in my shower. However, we have well water. Will the white marble start to turn orange over time from the iron in the well water. Our iron level is not too bad compared to some places.

More than likely - yes.

Not a good idea---Marble is very absorbent.
