is a rock resulting from metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, most commonly limestone or dolomite rock. Metamorphism causes variable recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. The resulting marble rock is typically composed of an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Primary sedimentary textures and structures of the original carbonate rock (protolith) have typically been modified or destroyed.
Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.
that has been crushed, pressed, heated, and bonded with a very small amount of resin. Unlike natural stone which is porous, Marblestone is less pervious to moisture which can cause mildew. Marblestone is more resistant to scratches and stains than quarried or cultured marble and does not require special cleaning or polishing. Marblestone is a green material which helps our environment and is not a petroleum rich material such as cultured marble. Marblestone is a material that can be used in a variety of areas. From bathroom counters, shower walls and floors to table tops and wainscoting, Marblestone is the perfect material. Beauty and affordability make Marblestone the perfect choice for your next project.
