What we call “marble” is, essentially, a kind of limestone, which in turn is a petrified sediment, deposited hundreds of thousands of years ago. Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting chiefly of recrystallized calcite or dolomite. The recognizable characteristic of marble stone is that it can be made to shine by polishing and the Greek word μάρμαρον means “shiny”. The ancients also used this word
