MARBLE

Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when rocks like limestone or dolomite is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. Under the conditions of metamorphism, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes to form a rock that is a mass of interlocking calcite crystals.

Due to its beauty, and durability that can endure for centuries, it’s one of the most important means of bringing art and culture from the past into our age. Also, since the ancient times it’s been offered to people and used to decorate their homes as a symbol of wealth and beauty.
