Màrmaros, in ancient Greek means “shining stone” and marble is in fact a metamorphic stone capable of reflecting light, in different ways, resulting in a clear and translucent effect, according to an effect defined as “wax”. This ability to react to different lighting conditions derives from the singular composition of this rock.
Marble is mainly composed of calcium carbonate and is formed through a metamorphic process that occurs between sedimentary rocks, limestone and dolomite, which in turn causes a complete recrystallization of calcium carbonate and gives rise to an infinity of crystals of calcite or dolomite.
Travertine marble is another marble excellence with which, for example, the Romans built one of the most famous monuments in the world: the Colosseum.
The beauty and value of this material make it still widely used in the creation of contemporary architectural works.
