Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that forms when limestone or dolomite is subject to heat and pressure (metamorphism). It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite and unlike granite or quartzite it is less hardwearing and more porous.
Marble is mainly white in colour with the characteristic brown-grey swirls and veins, however, stunning coloured marble varieties are also available. The coloration is often due to various mineral impurities and metal oxides which were present as grains or layers in the limestone before metamorphism took place.
