TYPES OF MARBLE BY COMPOSITION
When looking at types of marble by composition, think of these are more of an overarching category. Many types of marble can fall under these composition types because the composition type is how the marble is formed as opposed to just the color of the marble. These composition types have more to do
You can identify clastic marbles by small rock deposits or fossils within the marble. Clastic marbles can be found in and around Lucca, Spain. While marble is not a clastic rock itself, some marble is clastic in composition simply because it contains fragmented pieces within it.
Serpentine marble is more green or brownish in color and looks similar to limestone. This type of marble is easily identifiable by its color, and it is called Serpentine after the siliceous stone by the same name.
Pure calcareous marbles are usually composed of large crystals and don’t have any fossils inside. The different types of pure calcareous include travertine, saccharoids, spatic, and alabaster marbles. They can be white or colorful in appearance.
Calcareous crypto-crystalline marbles have a crystalline composition and contain multicolored fossils inside. Anytime you see vibrantly colored marbles, there’s a chance that they are of this composition. One example is the votive chapel of the Unknown Soldier in Rome.
