Marble is a form of metamorphosed limestone that is incredibly popular in sculpture and building. It is often white in color, but can also come grey, pinkish, reddish, or contain more than one color. It was the most popular medium for famous Greek and Roman sculptors. The veined appearance of marble makes it an excellent choice for flooring and tiling, as no tile is the same.
