"All I have ever wanted is a kitchen with marble countertops. So when I saw the range of marbles from Polycor, I was like a kid in a candy store. There’s just something so romantic about marble and it’s old world charm. Plus, I absolutely love the unique pattern, called movement, of each stone slab. This means my kitchen countertops will be truly unique!"

"I wish I could show each of you the sample in person because this marble has the most subtle iridescence to it that is beyond dreamy. "



Polycor-Georgia-Marble-Quarry-WEBLocated in Tate, GA, just a short drive from north of Atlanta, lies this hidden gem, the Georgia Marble™ quarry.



Quarried right here in the United States since 1887, Georgia Marble™ is a historic stone that has been used to build iconic architecture across the globe. From the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. to the New York Stock Exchange in New York City, it's a marble with deep American roots.

Jojo, with a desire to make purposeful design decisions, wanted to incorporate a piece of this history, and sustainability, into her kitchen design.

One Quarry - Three Marbles


The quarry's marble deposit runs for miles through the north Georgia hills and is over 700 feet deep. As a result, there are areas within the quarry where folds of mineral deposits produce a variety of stunning visual effects, resulting in 3 types of Georgia Marble™.



Georgia Marble™ - Solar Grey

The stone with the largest abundance, and deepest tonality of veining that at times is so dark it almost approaches black, is the Georgia Marble™ - Solar GreyThese slabs are bold in their patterning for the most dramatic effect.

Georgia Marble™ - Pearl Grey

The mid-range marble with less veining than Solar Grey, but not the lightest to come out of the quarry, is the Georgia Marble™ - Pearl Grey. Not quite the bold, strong and dark veining of the Solar Grey, this marble lies in the middle tone as far as the quantity and color of the movement in the slabs goes.

Georgia Marble™ - White Cherokee

Jojo ultimately landed on this as her stone of choice as her palette in the kitchen was more neutral. Georgia Marble™ - White Cherokee is the lightest of the marbles that the quarry produces. There's typically less veining and a lighter value shade in the vein itself versus the Solar Grey and Pearl Grey.
