The make-up of marble
The journey marble takes to become your designer kitchen countertop is a long and interesting one. The very slab under your chopping board is a slice of metamorphic rock that is formed from the re-crystallisation of limestone or dolomite under extreme heat and pressure. Variations in minerals, oxides, or other materials in the limestone – along with variations in heat, pressure, and time give marble its wide variety of unique colours, veining, and patterns that make it a popular choice for interior design.
Marble is extracted from quarries all over the world, including Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, China, and the United States. How marble gets from deep in the ground to the showroom floor involves drilling and cutting blocks from the earth, which are then transported to processing plants for further refinement.
