Marble is a rock formed by transforming limestone through heat or pressure, known as metamorphism. The constitution of marble consists primarily of calcite. Traces of other minerals are also present including, clay, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite.

Large deposits of marble are extensive throughout the world, mined on a large scale and producing millions of tons per year. Mostly turned into crushed stone and used as an aggregate for roads, buildings, and many types of construction. Also known as a dimension stone, marble gets cut into specific sizes further used as a building material.

The colours of marble can vary depending on the mineral contents of the stone. High-quality marble, usually formed from limestone, will be white. Impurities can change the colour of the stone. When marble is purely white, it gets crushed and used as a whitening agent in several manufactured products. Crushed marble is also an excellent acid neutralizer.

Marble receives a rating of three on the Moh’s Hardness Scale. Consequently, it’s easy to carve, furthering the usefulness of this stone, producing sculptures and ornamental objects. Polishing marble creates beautiful pieces of architectural and decorative art, such as floor tiles and stair treads.
