Think it’s marble ?

We got called in by a client to repair damage caused by a removal firm.  She said it was a marble top and on first inspection from a distance it does look like it! however …..

“Surprise” It turned out to be slate. ” yep!”  We turned up expecting to polish out scratches and it was a faux marble, a hand painted imitation marble from the early 1900s.  Fortunately, after explaining that it was slate and we could take out the scratches and polish it the client was more than happy with the finish.
