A metamorphic rock resulting from the recrystallization of limestone, comprising crystallized grains of calcite (calcium carbonate) or dolomite (calcium magnesium carbonate), or both. Also, rocks ranging from pure carbonate to those containing very little carbonate, yet having compositions and textures that permit them to be polished. (ASTM C1528) All stone here defined as marble must be capable of taking a
polish. (ASTM C119)
On our wish list for a sample.
Consistent green veins (compared to Cippolino). 80% of the grade is the green veining with subtle hints of Danby White in the background.
Soft gray veins. Light to medium veining. Very white background coming from the Brook Layer of the Danby Quarry.
Gray diagonal veins. Medium to heavy veining. Very white background coming from the Brook Layer of the Danby Quarry.
