Marble is a timeless material that has been used to manufacture headstones for centuries. There are many examples of Marble headstones in existence that are hundreds of years old. Kenya Marble Quarries Ltd manufactured its first Marble Headstone in 1923. We have a vast number of years experience in manufacturing quality Marble memorials in all shapes and sizes.
Origin of marble:
We quarry our own marble from our very own Kenyan deposits.
- Marble is quarried from various deposits around Kenya. Each deposit has a subtle colour variation.
- The Marble boulders are then taken to our factory in Nairobi for processing and polishing.
- Kenyan marble is comparable from marble from all over the world and has a distinctive rich light white background colour with subtle veining.
We also import processed marble from Italy to offer a varied choice of colour. This material tends to be more heavily veined than our local quarried marble, however appeals to some specific tastes. Both materials are equally hard wearing and take a similar shiny polish.
