Marble Characteristics

Marble is not as hard as granite, as it comes from deeper in the earth. Plus, it is exposed to heat. Nor it is soft as soapstone. Typically, it has a low abrasion rating, which means it scratches quite easily. But at the same time, marble is heat resistant, strong, and generally doesn’t chip or dent.

Marble Metamorphism

Not to mention, marble results from the metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks. These rocks are commonly limestone or dolomite rock. Metamorphism causes different recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains.

As a result, the marble rock is an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Sedimentary textures and structures are modified.
Pure white marble is the result of the metamorphism of limestone.

The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities. For example – clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.

In fact, green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities. Furthermore, these various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.
