From limestone to Marble
As a basic substance, green marble contains a base of at least 50% calcite. The original limestone was transformed into marble during the metamorphosis. The end product is very fine and crystalline. Mostly marble shimmers or glitters in sunlight and inspires its viewers. Thanks to these special properties, many artists such as Michelangelo decided to use marble to create their works of art. Green marble gets its green color from serpentine minerals or chlorite. Even the name chlorite translates from Greek green and describes this mineral class perfectly. The serpentine group is counted among the monoclinic crystal systems and means “snake stone”. It usually produces olive green and sometimes yellowish or brown tones.
