MarbleMarble comes from the Greek word "Marmaros" that means "Shiny surface". Marble is a limestone composed of very pure calcium carbonate which is then transformed by high pressure and heat in its crystalline form. The temperatures and pressures necessary to transform limestone to marble are so high that any fossils that were originally present in the limestone disappear. Besides the fact that fossils are missing, marble is well recognized for its sugar-like structure, best seen in the fractured surface. Because of its softness, its quiet atmosphere and relatively homogeneous composition marbles are commonly used in luxurious projects and for sculpture.
Marble types include:
• Carrara (Italy)
• Rosa Portogallo (Portugal)
• Arabescato (Italy)
• Thassos (Greece)
