Marble Formation and Uses

Marble is a sedimentary material, usually limestone or dolomite rock that has endured intense pressure and heat. In these conditions, the limestone re crystallizes into an interlocking mosaic of calcite, aragonite and/or dolomite crystals. The temperatures and pressures necessary to form marble usually destroy any fossils and sedimentary textures present in the original rock. Marble materials are not as hard as granite materials and is more susceptible to scratching and stains. This type of material is a great choice for vanities in bathrooms and any lower traffic areas.
