A rock material, most popular for its veining, used in sculptures and building materials.
Marble is a form of limestone that is considered a luxury, natural material for surfaces such as countertops, tables, and walls. The veins and different colors of marble are created by mineral impurities as the rock formed via metamorphosis. It measures between a 3 to 5 on the MOH scale of hardness, which means it is subject to scratches and abrasion if not maintained. The increased cost of this material is not in its rarity but the skill required to cut to custom dimensions and install. Marble also refers to the pattern typically found on this stone.
