There are several causes of cracks in marble. The most common is the expansion and contraction of the stone due to temperature changes. This can happen when the marble is used in an environment that is either too hot or too cold. If the temperature changes too quickly, the marble can crack.
Another cause of cracks in marble is physical damage. If the marble is dropped or hit hard, it can crack. Cracks can also occur if the marble is not installed properly. If it is not supported properly, the weight of the marble can cause it to crack.
Finally, some cracks in marble are caused by the natural process of the stone aging. As the stone gets older, it can become more brittle and susceptible to cracking.
