Marble stone

Marble stone

Marble stone is one of the most beautiful and useful rocks used in interior design of the buildings; as paving stones, stairs stones, residential, official, and commercial building floors and in stair floors, and because of its low resistance against climate changes, its usage in external design must be avoided. The porosity of the marble is low and has high ability of trituration, which leads in very outstanding polish after manufacture. The variety of colors of marble is very remarkable which includes both bright and dark colors as pink, cream, yellow, green, brown, and red. Chalipa stone industry has different marble stones as Asali Dehbid stone, Shayan Dehbid, Zare` Dehbid, white Dena Dehbid, cappuccino, diplomat, Chehrak, Abadeh, Harsin, Salsal, Faraz, Khoy, Mahkam, and black Dehbid. Marble stone can be provided in large sizes and slab and tile sizes and also in palletizing form, as the customers require. Marble is a kind of decorative calcareous stone that is from sedimentary rocks. This product has very high variety of color and pattern, and its large use is in interior design of the buildings and can be widely used in flooring, walls, and stairs. Its usage in stone industrial products is very common.

What is marble?

Marble is a calcareous stone which is classified as sedimentary rocks in geology. The main minerals in this rock are: calcite and dolomite; and its secondary minerals are carbon compounds, silicate, hematite, and limonite. Also, sometimes some lodes of quartz and clay compounds can be seen as well. The special weight of this stone is 2563 grams per cubic meters ( g/ ). Resistance and perseverance of the marble is less than granite, but more than travertine. Marble is a porous stone which its porosity is less than travertine, but more than granite and onyx. Marble is classified as decorative a stone which has diverse uses. The similarity of this rock in name and structure, mostly leads to making mistakes in diagnosing these stones. However, we must know that there are many differences and also similarities between them that we are going to discuss them, here.
As it was mentioned, marble is a calcareous sedimentary rock, but onyx is classified as calcareous metamorphic rock. Both marble and onyx undergo reactions in acidic environments and solve in acids. Onyx is transparent to light, but marble is not transparent to it. Resistance and price of the onyx is more than marble. The primary use of marble is in construction and building, but the primary use of onyx is in artificial products, accessories, and stone decorations. Both onyx and marble become turbid in air gradually, and both are white if they are pure.

Price of marble stone

There are different factors that control the price of marble, but generally the price has direct relationship with the mine which the stone came from, kind of production, the quality, color-scheme, size, and dimensions. As there are fewer lodes, and there is less impurity, the price of the marble is higher; because it is more resistant, and during its use or under process, it may not crack or break easily. Besides, the pure and unmixed whole surface of the stone makes it more beautiful.

Different kinds of marble

Presence of different percentages of calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate leads to two distinct classes of marble; calcite and dolomite. Dolomite marble has higher hardship, higher pressure resistance, higher resistance to erosion, higher ability for being polished, and also less refraction and breakage degree, less weathering, less corrosion and erosion,  less water permeability, less porosity and freeze and also less oxidation comparing to calcite marble. Besides, dolomite marble has more condensed crystal tissue and more strength comparing to calcite marble; so, there is more possibility for fossils to exist in this class of stones. There are so many marble mines in Iran as Abadeh  marble mine, Golcheshmeh Mahallat, Khoy, Mahkam, Harsin, Jiroft, Diplomat, Khoobsangan,  Najaf abad, Cheriki, Polpisheh Kordestan, Rose flower, Birjand, Spider, Bavanat Chehrak, Operador stone, Sanandaj Gavshan, Gohareh, Charmahal and Bakhtiari Baba Heydar, Bafogh rose, Yazd Moalla, Arsanjan partawousi, Nazar abad, Simakan , Josheghan, Bajestan, Anarak, Diamond, Persian Silk, and Fars Dehbid marble mines. The mined stone from each mine has many chemical compounds. For instance, Sabzevar and Kashmar marbles from Khorasan province have white background, or Anarak marble has red background, and Shayan and Samin Dehbid marbles have cream background. The colors pink and red are due to presence of hematite and manganese carbonate; the colors yellow and cream are due to presence of limonite mineral; and colors grey and black are due to presence of carbon and, chlorite and  green colors are due to presence of silicates in the stones.
