The properties of marble and values ​​enhance life

1. The properties of Marble
+ Hardness: Is one of the properties of important Marble when talking about natural stone. Toughness and strength are always things that 
a 3-year-old child can understand and read to you, regardless of the stone. However, do you know that in the toughness that we tell us,
it can still be considered soft. You may not believe it but the truth is, typical for this, the Marble is an example.Compared to the
original rock, limestone and initial dolomite, Marble has the same amount of calcite as they do. However, the crystalline particles have
been compressed together due to metamorphism, so it is less porous and stiffer than the original rocks.The hardness of a rock is usually
measured by the Mohs hardness scale, which has a value from 1 to 10. The rock of hardness 1 - 3 is called soft rock, 3 - 6 is called
medium hardness stone, and 6-10 is called hard rock. Marble has a hardness of 3-4 on the Mohs hardness scale. Therefore, it is only
considered to be soft or medium rocks.
Weathering and weak acid resistance: Because CaCO3 in rock is very susceptible to corrosion from acidic agents (CO2, SO2, etc.) in the 
environment, its surface will lose its shine after corrosion, and become rough, porous. Therefore, except for special types (such as

Han White Jade Marble and wormwood marble etc.), Marble should not be used outdoors without surface protection or carefully shielded. + Color:If you are looking for a decorative natural stone with beautiful and luxurious colors, you will never find a stone that can be
better than Marble. And if you want to find a natural stone with the most diverse colors today, the name Marble will never let you down.
Their colors can vary from white to black, but the patterns of marble also have hundreds of different shades. This has brought a
diversity that any stone is hard to get. And to get that, the main reason is thought to come from impurities in the original rock, or
the surrounding soil element mixed in when geological activities occurred.
Eg:

+ Marble with a white background is said to be a manifestation of pure calcite particles, without interfering minerals to give it color, 
or if so, its minerals will also be white. + Pink is dyed with iron oxide, like yellow stone. + Dark green and red are due to magnesium-containing serpentine rocks. + Fossil-rich limestone, the carbon in fish, algae, or seaweed returns to elemental carbon in graphite when the stone is heated and
becomes a graphite-transmitting Marble stone and this stone is light gray with metallic luster. + A block of Marble formed fractures underground, mineral-filled groundwater will come to fill the void and patch the debris back into
solid mass, while creating a spectacular pattern at the same time. there. Arabescato is a beautiful example of Marble.
2. The nature of Marble and values ​​enhance life
+ Sculpting: With the hardness is not too high, it can be a disadvantage of Marble when applied in places with many environmental 
impacts, but plus the ease to work, refine, and Polished and kicked is actually a favorite material of many sculptors from ancient to
modern.In addition, the surface opacity can be compared with human skin color, which is an important characteristic of Marble. To make a
natural marble sculpture. There is a visual depth beyond its surface, evoking a certain realism when used for symbolic works. In
addition, the low calcite refractive index allows light to penetrate several millimeters into the rock before being scattered out,
resulting in a distinctive wax appearance that gives "sculptures" life to the sculptures. + As an ingredient for toothpaste, paint, plastic: White Marble stones are a rich source of calcium carbonate, while calcium carbonate
under high temperatures produces calcium oxide, also known as "lime". Lime is the main ingredient of most cement and has many other
applications. Therefore, their fine grinding powder is used in a variety of industries such as ingredients in paint, toothpaste and
plastics.
In addition, marble dust can be combined with cement or synthetic resins to rebuild marble, and they will be referred to as "artificial 
marble" a less expensive alternative to marble. natural marble.
+ Making animal feed: According to the nature of Marble above, the hardness of the stone is low, the composition of calcite is high and
the solubility of Marble. Allow them to be used as a calcium additive in animal feed. Calcium additives are especially important for
dairy cows and chickens producing eggs. It is also used as a low hardness abrasive to clean bathroom and kitchen furniture.
+ Healing: With a rich content of calcium carbonate, marble will react when exposed to acid, this if used for decoration and
construction without surface protection, it will be a huge cons. . However, if we think differently, and find it a new application,
you will be extremely surprised because it brings it. Due to its easy chemical reaction with acid, it is one of the most effective acid
neutralizing materials. Therefore it is often crushed and used to neutralize acids in streams, lakes and soil.
It is also used to
neutralize acids in the chemical industry. Pharmaceutical antacids like "Tums" contain calcium carbonate, sometimes made from powdered
marble. These medications are very helpful for people with acid reflux or acid indigestion. Also when ground into a powder, it can be
used as an inert filler in other tablets.
+ Decorative and tiling applications for interior and exterior projects due to the rare variety of colors and high-end beauty that few
natural stones can match, they are often produced by sawing into pieces of specific dimensions for use in monuments. , buildings,
sculptures, tiling and other projects. In addition, they are also used as surfaces for interior applications such as tables,
cabinets, counters, ...
Hopefully, with what we have shared above, you have grasped the properties of Marble and good applications thanks to those properties. 
Please share a lot if you find the article interesting, and if you are still not interesting, read the following article: Interesting
things about natural Marble that you may not know. At present, there are PVC stone wall cladding, a material to replace natural stone.
In addition, they possess the beauty not unlike natural stones. It is waterproof, easy to apply, and relatively cheap compared to
natural stone.
