Marble

It is a composition formed by recrystallization of limestone and dolomitic limestones as a result of a metamorphic event. 90-98% of their composition consists of CaCO₃. It contains a small amount of MgCO₃. The main mineral in marble, made up of CaCO₃ crystals, is “calcite”.

It is manufactured for marble coating and flooring purpose. It is strong, preferably non-cracking, resistant to weathering, oxidation and color changes in sunlight, homogeneous in terms of structure, texture, color and pattern distribution. In general, natural stone products are used in structures that are polished by flattening the surfaces. Facade cladding and floor coverings, the surface of which is roughened using special processes and used without polishing, have also become widespread in recent times. Marble is a commercial term used to describe stone used for decorative purposes (although the nature of the stone does not lend itself to polishing) on vertical surfaces (interior and exterior), floors, stair treads and all types of coatings. Natural rock types are amorphous, as in some limestone samples, and crystalline, as in marble, granite, and other rocks. While some marbles are of a single type, others are formed by combining different groups of crystals. In sandstone, gravel (conglomerate) and breccia type sedimentary rocks, the grains are bound by a natural cement.
