Let’s Talk Science:
Marble is a metamorphic rock, which means it has gone through a physical change, or more commonly know metamorphosis. This change happens when heat and pressure that naturally happens inside or on Earth’s surface changes a rock over thousands of years. Marble starts out as limestone rock, which is made of hardened fossils, and then heat and pressure changes it into marble. In nature, marble can develop to be very large rocks, up to hundreds of feet in size! Marble is made of tiny minerals called calcite or dolomite. Sometimes, small amounts of other minerals like quartz and mica are found in marble, which gives it various natural colors, patterns, or designs. Marble is found in various places around the world including India, Greece, Spain, Turkey, Italy, and the United States of America.
Depending on the limestone and the mineral combination within the marble, most marble rates from three to five on the Mohs hardness scale. This makes it less durable than granite.
