Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone is subjected to enormous forces inside the earth's crust. This process, called re-crystallization, causes changes in texture and composition. Fossilized materials, along with carbonates, form large, coarse grains of calcite. Any impurities present affect the mineral composition and the color of the marble that forms. Marble is found in many countries and in all corners of the globe. Today, the quarrying and production of marble is a very involved and highly automated process using a variety of purpose-built machines.
