Marble is a metamorphic rock formed by the alteration of limestone or dolomite or combination of both by heat and pressure. Marble is valued for its rich palette of beautiful colors and appearance and is perfect, pretty much anywhere in the house. Some of the different colors of marble are Red, Black, White, Cream, Golden, Orange and others.
This stone is recycled natural marble that has been crushed, pressed, heated, and bonded with a very small amount of resin. The result is a material that retains all the beauty of marble while offering the performance of a durable composite.According to scientific terminology, marble is a metamorphic rock which contains over 50% carbonates (calcite or dolomite) formed by metamorphic recrystallization of a carbonatic rock.
According to traditional commercial terminology, on the other hand, it indicates a compact polishable natural stone, used for decoration and in building, consisting principally of minerals with a hardness between 3 and 4 on the Mohs scale (such as calcite, dolomite or serpentine)
