If this if for a teaching lab, I would highly advise you to avoid marble at
all costs. Marble is highly porous. In our new building the marble was
stained within a month once classes began. We have tried to seal it but to
no avail. We are now putting aluminum plates under the balance to avoid
chemicals from staining the tables. Also marble is very reactive to acid.
I would suggest a concrete table. They can be sealed.
