What is marble?
Geologically, marble is a metamorphosed rock made of carbonate minerals. It is essentially a limestone or dolomite that has been subjected to high levels of heat and/or pressure within the earth. This causes the rock to recrystallize and also often creates unique new mineral patterns.
Marbles that TLP company imports from all over the world
Pure white marbles result from very pure limestone or dolomite and have been prized for millennia for their beauty. White marbles have been used to create everything from the Taj Mahal to numerous statues such as Michaelangelo’s David. The reason it has been such a prized material for sculptors is that, in its purest state, it has a soft, skin-like quality – an ideal material for carving and one that results in a truly unique, lifelike finished product. The softness that makes marble great for sculptors, is also one of the marble’s weaknesses for homeowners. Because it is softer than say, granite, marble is more prone to scratching than other countertop options.
Most often, marble is not pure carbonate minerals. These impurities create all variety of veining and patterns in the marbles and can give it colors ranging from black to brown, to green, and nearly everything in between. This means that whether you love the white with grey veining of Carrara or Calacatta, or want something darker like Emperador or Verde Dark, there’s probably a shade of marble for your project!
