Marble is a metamorphic rock. It is composed mostly of calcite, resulting from the metamorphism of limestone. Impurities in the stone such as silt, clay, sand, iron and various oxides are re-crystallized by intense heat. These re-crystallized impurities are what give marbles their beautiful veining. The use of marble in interior design portrays the look of elegance and luxury. Marble is a softer stone and can be scratched and etched. Onyx is a variety of marble highly prized for its beautiful translucence.
