What is Marble?

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

- Michelangelo

True to the statement, a beauty crafted in a marble cannot escape one’s memory.

Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite (CaCO3) and usually contains other minerals, such as clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite.

Granite can easily be found in forms of mountains and also beneath the earth’s crust
