Before deciding, we recommend that you should know the following:
Stone-formed from limestone rocks of great quality and beauty. Compact metamorphic rock formed from limestone rocks that, when subjected to high temperatures and pressures, reach a high degree of crystallization. The basic component of marble is calcium carbonate, whose content exceeds 90% of its makeup; the other components, considered impurities, are those that give a great variety of colors in the marbles and define their physical characteristics. After a polishing process by abrasion, the marble reaches a high level of natural shine, that is, without waxes or chemical components.
In nature, marble is found in irregular agglomerates within primitive crystalline rock, (where it forms irregular deposits that often turn out to be veins) and less frequently forming strata (in layers).
In keeping with the mineralogical concept, (not the artisanal one), only the grainy-vitreous aggregates are considered marbles, basically formed by calcium carbonate and with more or less significant traces of magnesium carbonate (dolomitic marble).
Often other minerals appear together with calcite forming marble, such as graphite, chlorite, talc, mica, quartz, pyrite and some precious stones such as corundum, garnet, zirconite, etc.
Marble is used mainly in construction, decoration and sculpture. It is sometimes translucent, of different colors, such as white, brown, red, green, black, gray, blue-yellow, and it can appear uniform in color, mottled (to splashes), streaked (hatching of lines) and various configurations or mixtures among them, more.
