Marble is a rock that got its name from the Greek word "marmaros" (in translation - shiny, shining). It is a durable yet easy-to-work material, suitable for both the creation of exquisite sculptures and the construction of colossal architectural complexes. Today, marble is one of the most popular finishing materials in design and architecture.
Pure marble has a snow-white color and is quite rare. This is a statuary, fine-grained type of stone that is used in sculptural art. Even a small percentage of impurities significantly affects the color of the stone, and the shade can vary within one deposit or even a block.
In nature, there are yellow, pink, blue, greenish, reddish and even black shades. Colored rocks are characterized by a large number of veins - these are cracks filled with natural cements.
Marble is a strong, durable and temperature-resistant stone. During mechanical processing, the material retains its original structure: it does not exfoliate, does not break, does not form internal cracks.
Marble is known for its high mechanical strength. According to this indicator, it exceeds concrete by 2-2.5 times. Due to the filamentous structure, this stone is able to withstand high static and dynamic loads. And even if you break a marble tile, the fracture line will not have sharp edges and can be easily polished.
