Geologists use the term “marble” to refer to metamorphosed limestone.
Metamorphic process causes a complete crystallisation of the original rock into an interlocking mosaic of calcite, aragonite and/or dolomite crystals.
The word “marble” has been derived from the Greek word “marmaros,” which mean “shining stone.”
This is also the basis for the English word “marmoreal,” meaning “marble-like.”
The swirls and veins of many coloured marble varieties are the result of various mineral impurities, like clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert that originally had the presence as grains or layers in the limestone.
General Characteristic of Marble Stone can be describe as:
Prestige and elegant with patterns and natural veins.
