Marble is usually formed from a limestone that has undergone a metamorphic process. The metamorphic process involves heat and pressure over long periods of time causing substantial physical and chemical change. The result of this process is typically a stone that is denser, less absorbent and visually different to the original stone.
Marble has been used as a building material for thousands of years and has always been a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste. Its variations in colour and pattern continues to make marble one of the most sought after natural stone products worldwide.
