Formation process of Marble

2023-10-18

Marble, also known as marble, is recrystallized limestone with calcium carbonate as its main component. Limestone softens under high temperature and pressure and recrystallizes to form Marble as the minerals it contains change. The main components are calcium and dolomite, many colors, usually have a distinct pattern, many mineral particles. Mohs hardness is between 2.5 and 5. Because Marble generally contains impurities, and calcium carbonate in the atmosphere by carbon dioxide, carbide, water gas action, also easy to weathering and corrosion, and make the surface soon lose luster.

Marble is generally soft in physical nature, which is relative to granite. In interior decoration, Marble is suitable for TV table, windowsill and indoor floor. Marble is a commodity name, not a petrological definition. Marble is a kind of natural building decoration stone, generally refers to the metamorphic or non-metamorphic carbonate rocks that have decorative functions and can be processed into architectural stones or crafts. Marble refers to marble, limestone, dolomite, skarn and marble formed by different alteration of carbonate rocks.

Marble is a metamorphic rock formed by the action of high temperature and high pressure in the earth's crust. The action of internal forces in the earth's crust promotes the qualitative change of various rocks. Qualitative change refers to the change of the structure, structure and mineral composition of the original rock, and the new rock type formed through qualitative change is called metamorphic rock. Marble is mainly composed of calcite, limestone, serpentine and dolomite, and its main component is calcium carbonate, accounting for more than 50%. Others are magnesium carbonate, calcium oxide, manganese oxide and silicon dioxide. Marble is generally soft in nature, which is relative to granite. Of course, you don't have to worry about this, because geologic time is measured in billions, and this qualitative change is a limited change in our lifetimes. Marble floor tiles attract the attention of consumers with their gorgeous appearance and very practical features. Different from other building stones, the texture of each Marble floor tile is different. The Marble with clear and curved texture is smooth and delicate, bright and fresh, like bringing you a visual feast again and again. Installed in the living room, it can set off the room to be more elegant and generous.
