Marble stone is formed from limestone, superheated in nature to form its unique crystalline structure. Marble occurs in large deposits that can be hundreds of feet thick and geographically extensive. This allows it to be economically mined on a large scale with some mines and quarries producing millions of tons per year. The color variations depend on the other materials that combine with the primary mineral, calcite, before it was formed.
