Marble has been used to make statues and provide flooring since ancient times. The Taj Mahal in India is made entirely of marble.
Marble is primarily white but can come in other colors as well. Back in ancient times, you could easily tell where a piece of marble came from by looking at its color. Impurities are what gives marble its color.
Marble usually originates as limestone or dolomite.
Calcite, dolomite crystals, and aragonite are the key components of marble. Marble usually lays among the oldest part of the Earth's crust.
Marble is a softer material often used in bathrooms. It is typically most sought after, because its colors tend to be white/lighter with low or high veins usually in a grey shade. Some marbles have light pink or blue colors in them as well. There are a few downfalls to this beautiful stone. The three most common are how porous the stone is,it's ability to stain, and scrath. Marble is not recommended for kitchen use, but vanities, tables and outside bar areas are a good location for this material.
