Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized limestone or carbonate minerals, such as calcite and dolomite. True marble was originally limestone that has been altered by heat and pressure over time. These materials originally deposited as unconsolidated sediments under water by chemical precipitation and by living organisms, have been buried, heated and subject to huge confining pressures over lengthy periods of time. Such processes of metamorphism have transformed the limestone to a denser, harder crystalline rock.
Marble is an elegant choice for flooring, wall tiles, bathroom vanities, showers and tub decks, countertops and many more surfaces. Marble is a softer and more porous surface than granite or quartz so it can wear slightly. Part of marble’s charm is its changing luster as it ages.
