Marble is a rock made up of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) which has undergone a natural recrystallization process. The rock has turned into marble over time due to high temperatures and intense pressure.
As a result of this metamorphosis, new minerals, textures and structures have given rise to a large number of marble types, with different shades of colour and very refined veins.
Used since ancient times to create sculptures and architectural works, it is a material that stands out for its coldness and brightness. In fact, marble derives from the Greek word marmaros which means “shining stone”, precisely because of its ability to attract and reflect light.
Always considered as luxury materials, marbles are suitable for enhancing high-quality environments and giving life to chromatic effects with a great aesthetic impact. In nature we find different types of marble, classified according to name, origin and colour. This classification is useful in choosing the most suitable solution.
