What is Marble, Limestone Onyx and Natural Stone?

Marble is a metamorphic rock made out of limestone or dolomite: When  limestone or dolomite is subjected to tremendous pressure and heat for a long time, it gets squashed into marble. Marble is found in the mountainous regions. Turkey is one of the most rich and popular source of marble and limestone with holding %40 percent of world natural stone reserves and with the highest variety of colors.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of calcium carbonate, plus calcium and/or magnesium. It is formed when layers of minerals (particularly calcite), fine sediment, and the skeletons and shells of marine organisms undergo lithification. Terrestrially-formed limestone is known as travertine.


Colors of Earth:

Colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert. These minarels lead marble to be white, beige, bluish, gray, pink, or black.
