Repairing damaged marble

I inherited a large credenza with a marble top. This top is removable and sits on top of the wood. The top has some damage in one area. It apparently has been damaged for awhile. It looks like some of the marble crumbled off when it was bumped or hit. There is no cracking at all in the area. I just need to know what I can use to fill in this spot on the edge that will blend in with the marble to prevent it from looking bad or getting worse. The spot is roughly about a half inch in diameter.

Hi Zoe, welcome to the forum.

Is there any way you could post a picture for us? It would help a lot.

sometimes its possible if you can square up the piece with a grinder you can epoxy a piece to it that closely matches the colorthen shape it and polish it.laticrete sells a 2 part epoxy 310 stone adhesive that you can buy in small kits little pricey and you can get it in 5 min or 15min set times it dries white or try to find akemi which is a little yellower but you can mix some marble dust made from the stne youll be gluing to the piece to color it.if its a soft marble it can be polished and even shaped with sandpaper although its dusty.

Hi Zoe, Welcome!

Unfortunately, you'll need a couple more posts before you'll be allowed to post a picture. Usually a stone professional is needed to complete this type of repair.

I agree with Jason's excellent advice for general stone repairs, sight unseen. However, without seeing the stone, it is impossible to give you accurate advice.
