A lot of people assume marble and limestone are quite a bit more expensive than granite.
That's not necessarily true!
Natural stone has quite a few factors that determine the price. Origin, availability, and a yield of a given quarry are the main factors.
With both granite and marble there is a broad spectrum of pricing.
The popular Emperador Dark and Carrara marbles are both similar in pricing to a group 2 priced granite like Giallo Veneziano.
