Movement in Marble

Posted On September 28, 2018

What exactly is Movement in Marble? To start with, we are referring to visual movement, not actual movement. Anyone who has given even a cursory look at marble as a floor covering, wall covering, or countertop will understand that the stone has a “pattern” of sorts. Let’s learn more about that.

Movement in Marble

A great deal of the movement or pattern that you observe in marble is what is known as veining. Essentially, marble is a metamorphic rock formed when limestone is exposed to extraordinarily high heat. The veins that you observe running through marble are, from a geological stand point, sheets or plates of crystallized minerals. These veins are absolutely essential in creating the organic, natural appearance the marble should project.

We have used a few images of Calacatta marble in order to illustrate the natural beauty and flow of marble veining. We hope this helps and thanks for reading.
