Marble is a finite resource which makes it a unique medium to work with. An eight foot, leather-pocket table weighs little more than a coin-op, about 750 pounds with slate. The marble however, appears megalithic. It is impervious to all but a hammer. It will not fade, warp or decay. The marble is polished to 8,500 grit/sq.in. and will never need refinishing. A passing hand does not feel sights. In 1998 Anthony Arculeo was awarded a US patent (#5720666) for his marble pool tables. No varnish or plastic coating is ever used. These are NOT mass-produced "cookie-cutter" tables. Any size pool or billiard table, 7-foot, 8-foot, 9-foot and snooker sizes are possible. The base and sights can be illuminated using translucent onyx stones. Also, custom monograms or logos can be in-laid into the stone.
