What is Marble?
Marble occurs in large deposits that can be hundreds of feet thick and geographically extensive. This allows it to be economically mined on a large scale with some mines and quarries producing millions of tons per year. Marble is usually a light coloured rock. When it is formed from a limestone with very few impurities, it will be white in colour. Marble that contains impurities such as clay minerals, iron oxides or bituminous material can be bluish, grey, pink, yellow or black in colour.
After being sanded with progressively finer abrasives, marble can be polished to a high lustre. This allows attractive pieces of marble to be cut, polished and used as floor tiles, architectural panels, facing stone, windowsills, stair treads, columns and many other pieces of decorative display.
