The term “Marble” is derived from the Latin word Murmur which in turn is said to have been coined from Greek word Marmorous, meaning shining stone. It is known for its pleasant colours, smooth and uniform texture, moderate hardness, amenability to be quarried into big blocks, smooth & shiny polished surface and silky feel. Marble occupies a unique position among other dimension stones because of its aesthetic value.
In terms of geological definition, it is a metamorphosed limestone produced by re-crystallisation under the conditions of thermal and regional metamorphism. In commercial parlance, all calcareous rocks capable of taking polish are classed as marbles.
Rajasthan has the distinction of having the best among Indian resources of good quality marble. Out of 33 districts, 20 districts have marble in one or the other form.
USES OF MARBLE

The slabs are also used for interior and outer facings, stairs, table tops, kitchen platforms, etc. The tiles in sizes ranging from 10 x 10 cm to 60 x 60 cm are used for floors, dadoes and for skirting in thickness ranging from 10 to 20 mm.
