Harquahala Marble Stone Decorator Sphere Rock

This Harquahala Marble hand carved stone sphere is almost 3.25 inches or 80 mm in diameter. It is a pink color with green epidote banding.

Named after its location - the Harquahala (har-ka-hay-la) Mountains in Arizona - this lustrous pink marble with beautiful green marbling, is a metamorphosed limestone. A granular rock composed of crystalline calcite grains, it was most likely formed by water working its way through beds of limestone.

Marble is a metamorphic material and 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.
