MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
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. Under the
conditions of metamorphism, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes to
form a rock that is a mass of interlocking calcite crystals.
Marble has always been a luxurious cultural symbol of architectural refinement. It’s extravagant beauty, lasts for generations, and has always been a favorite medium of sculptors, architects and designers.
Marble has a glorious cultural past, and with its glamour it has been used to distinguish
some of the most inspiring buildings in our history.
From the Taj Mahal in India to the Parthenon in Greece
it’s durability, longevity, beauty, and elegance ensure that it transforms
an ordinary space into a linchpin monument for the ages.
“Every block of stone has a statue inside and it is the task of
the sculptor to discover it.”
