Marble is a crystalline, compact variety of metamorphosed limestone, consisting primarily of calcite ( CaCO3 ), dolomite( CaMg (CO3) 2), or a combination of both minerals. Pure calcite is white, but mineral impurities add color in variegated patterns.

Marble can be successfully used for low traffic in-house applications like vanities, fireplaces or walls. It is favourable stone for its beauty and design but it is softer than granite and challenging for breaking, acids and liquid absorption.
