marbles

Marble is a metamorphic stone capable of reflecting light resulting surprisingly translucent and pure; arises from the sedimentation on the seabed of different materials (such as shells and minerals), which geological events have modified by coloring and hardening them over the years, thus creating a metamorphosis such as to no longer recognize its origin.

Marbles are mainly composed of calcium carbonate: it is well known that to clean marble, for example, it is absolutely not necessary to use a descaling product.

marbles characteristics

Thanks to the presence of mineral impurities in the rock (clay, silt, iron oxides, sand), marble is characterized by different colors rendered above all through its particular veins and colored textures.

Surely marble is one of the stones with the brightest colors and easily mixed with each other: the tones range from pink / brick (like hematite microcrystals), green (thanks to chlorite), gray (microcrystalline pyrite), to yellow, purple and so on.

The marble takes on these veins and shades based on the area where the stone is extracted, for this reason some types are considered valuable thanks to the characteristic of the quarry.
If we had a pearl white stone, we would be faced with pure marble, as it is mainly composed of calcite.
Marble, as mentioned before, must not be subject to the use of descaler, it certainly fears acids as opposed to fatty substances (which do not cause excessive damage).

processing and use

Certainly loved by those who feel the need to return to the value of a material lasting over time and full of charm, the bearer of quality and creativity, marble is always indifferent to fashions and trends of any kind.
Symbol of elegance and charm, today it is one of the most used materials in the context of furnishings for private and public buildings.
In the bathrooms, marble has certainly assumed a primary role, giving it a unique appearance and creating an atmosphere of well-being and serenity; used mostly in the construction of floors and walls, it is now increasingly invested in the construction of washbasins, showers and bathtubs, giving strong contrasts with all the other elements of the room.

The use of this stone for flooring has found great space in private homes, thanks to its versatility (which can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living area) and its ability to reflect light to accentuate the brightness of the house.

The use of marble in the construction of indoor stairs is another ideal way to enhance the beauty of any domestic context, but also commercial and industrial (suitable for less formal environments, giving that familiar and welcoming atmosphere that is so much requested) .

The application of CNC technology and the industrialization of marble processing for architectural use, although it is not recent, allows the continuous development of new design products, to enter new scenarios and to work this stone with sustainable costs, decreasing the waste materials.

the main types of marble

the classification of the main types of marble usually occurs on the basis of the composition of the stones and their origin:

  • classic marbles are recognized in the form of small accumulations in rocks, in siliceous (or calcareous) materials and in cemented fossils;
  • serpentine marbles (also known as ‘green meadow marbles’), are called in this way thanks to the rock from which they derive which is the serpentine (usually they are characterized by a pale green color, but can take on dark shades that tend to blue and to yellow);
  • the stones characterized by the presence of very large crystals, are crystalline limestone marbles, have a total absence of impurities and an appearance that can recall crystallized sugar
  • the cryptocrystalline limestone marbles, on the other hand, have a less defined crystalline structure and are particular thanks to the presence of multicolored fossils from which the different colors derive.
