Welcome to the Marble Gallery

Marble is a metamorphic rock caused from the re-crystallization of limestone. Commercially, all calcareous rocks which are created by nature that are capable of taking a polish are called marbles.

Marbles often occur interbedded with such metamorphic rocks as mica schists, phyllites, gneisses, and granulites and are most common in the older layers of the Earth's crust that have been deeply buried in regions of extreme folding and igneous intrusion. The change from limestones rich in fossils into true marbles in such metamorphic regions is a common phenomenon; occasionally, as at Carrara, Italy, and at Bergen, Nor., recrystallization of the rock has not completely obliterated the organic structures.
