What is Marble? How is it formed?
Marble is a combination of limestone and dolomitic re-interaction with each other as a result of metamorphism. It consists of Calcium Carbonate in its composition. Moreover, it contains a low amount of Magnesium carbonate. In short, marble is the composition formed due to the metamorphism of limestones called limestone.
Metamorphism occurs due to high pressure and temperature in the under-ground depths. It consists of calcite acids in limestone, which is of great importance in the formation of marble. Moreover, it contains different organic substances in its content. Some of them are: silica, feldspar, silica, mica. When you look at the black and white laboratory, you can more clearly see the intertwined Calcite Crystals.
Marble properties and usage areas
Marbles have different colors and moreover, they are among the most used natural stones. It is estimated that 40% of the world’s reserves are in Turkey. Therefore, it has an important potential as it is an important source of income for Turkey. So what are the properties and uses of marble? Here are all the details!
Marble adapts specifically to the user. Usage areas may differ from person to person. Its hardness, water absorption rate, wear rate, pressure and even how much the polish holds are variable. As the mineral density increases, the degree of hardness also increases. Hard ones are generally preferred to be applied in flooring areas. Since marble has water absorption feature, it is also used in exterior cladding. Rain grains cause soluble dispersion containing carbonate and also swallow rain grains. Hollow hard marbles have higher polish retention than other marbles. Polished marbles give a completely different look from other natural stones.
Where is Marble Mine Used?
We always hear the word marble because there are many product options compared to other natural stones in terms of usage, but in which areas is it used?
- In the construction industry
- İnterior decoration
- Indoor and outdoor flooring
- Exterior cladding
- Stair step
- Sculpture shaved
- kitchen bathroom toilet
- Decorative ornaments
- Coffee table
- Shower Tray
It is used in many similar areas such as shopping malls, Terminals, Airports and Metro. It is always preferred because it is long-lasting. I think it will continue to be preferred for many years because there are so many in Turkey.
