Marble originates in the Earth’s core through the action of heat and pressure on limestone and dolomite. The tectonic movement of the Earth’s crust may cause hematite, graphite, limonite, or serpentine inclusions, lending marble its distinctive pattern of colored veins. Another characteristic feature is the glistening of individual carbonate crystals in the cleavage surfaces of the rocks. The word “marble” actually stems from the Greek word marmairein, which means “to sparkle.” Marble used as a pigment creates this white that delicately sparkles in the light.
