What is Marble?
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. It starts out as limestone, which over years with intense heat and pressure, begins to transform.
The veins that appear in Marble are caused by mineral deposits which settle into layers as the stone forms.
Pure white Marble is the result of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many coloured marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.
