Breaking Strength of Marble. How much weight can a sheet of Tennessee pink marble support? Sheet is 1"x12"x30". It and two others like it will be the base of an octagonal plinth which will support a concrete urn weighing about 200 lbs empty, maybe 400 lbs when planted. Plinth is entirely built of this marble and hollow inside. I am open to suggestions for interior supports, currently thinking of gluing a rod to underside of marble and extending it below ground surface.

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... [more inside]

I left a new bottle of toilet bowl cleaner on the bathroom counter while unpacking groceries. It leaked, and I didn't notice until the next day. Now there's a rough white stain on the counter (marble) that won't come off. Any ideas on how to remove it?

While at Target this evening, I was shopping for a birthday present for a nephew, there were two 10/11 year olds talking about and trading these marble like toys. When they set them down, they "transformed" into something else, there parents were apparently there to buy them but Target was sold out. I heard them talking but was busy with my own kids and forgot to check out the aisle or talk to the people. I'm usually pretty in touch with toys and such, but I have no idea what these were. Any one know?

Marble Countertop Help! It seems that the finish/sealant/coating has bubbled or otherwise created a white spot on the black marble countertop in our house. What would've caused this? How can we fix it? The countertop is man-made black marble, and there's now a white spot on the top marring the perfect marble-ness.
