Marble Industry (Volume III) - April 2005

All natural stones including marble, granite and slate, which can be cut to sizes, polished and used for construction purposes, are referred to as dimensional stones. Each of these stones represents a family of similar stones, with various combinations of different minerals. The major distinction is made on the basis of their base minerals, which are Calcium compounds (calcareous) for marbles, Silica compounds (siliceous) for granite and Shale clay for slate. Dimensional stones are characterized by aesthetics/acoustics and practicality in use. Their apparent occurrences have lent them to many uses for centuries particularly construction and allied uses. Their different chemical, mineralogical, and physical properties determine their appropriate extraction and processing requirements, in addition to bearing upon their end use.
