What is marble?

Marble is formed by exposure to heat and pressure of limestone, which is formed over time by metamorphic movements.


It's substantially composed of the mineral calcite (CACO 3) and generally also contains other minerals similar as complexion minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides and graphite. Under the conditions of metamorphism, calcite in the limestone recrystallizes to form a gemstone, which is a mass of interlocking calcite chargers.






Their color is generally white, Beige and grey. But because of foreign substances, they can also be in colors similar to unheroic, pink, red, bluish, brownish and black. When examined under a microscope, it's seen that it consists of “ Calcite Chargers” that are well interlocked together.



Marble has been used in numerous infrastructures throughout history and it's a history left to us from the Ottoman Empire.



Although numerous monuments can be used rather than marble now, marble is a history that has a necessary nostalgia for it. Marble has numerous kinds coming out of Turkey and imported.
