Marble is a granular rock composed of crystalline calcite grains, it was most likely formed by water working its way through beds of limestone. Marble is found all over the world in many different colors and patterns. The colors are due to impurities present when the rock was changing -clay, sand, iron oxide, etc. Marble is highly prized for its inexhaustible supply and often used in buildings.
