Marble top repair filter: I found two lovely hand-carved marble vanity tops at an antique store last weekend that are perfect for our bathroom remodel. The price is right, the marble is lovely...but! There is a huge crack on one of the tops...
? The picture doesn't show the colors very well, but the marble looks like carrera marble - a lovely white marble with grey veining.
My question is this: is there anyway to lighten up that yellowed crack, so that it blends in more with the natural grey veining? Some way to clean it, or better yet, take it to a marble restorer to have the crack re-repaired so that it's not so yellow? Or is it not worth the hassle? (I haven't bought them yet, and will not until I am sure that I can better disguise that crack). I found this
previous question, but it doesn't really help me much.
And my question within a question: even if I do get that crack lightened, and I just asking for a huge headache by buying a vanity top with a crack in the first place?
(I will try to contact some stone/marble companies here in Memphis, but wanted to see if Metafilter could help, or at least send me in the right direction.)
