Decorating fashion ideas with green marble
Marble is a timeless material that never goes out of style. It is super durable, very resistant to everything you can imagine and instantly provides an elegant feeling of luxury. We are all accustomed to seeing gray, white and black marble decoration in kitchens, bathrooms and even living rooms, but some of you may say that it is outdated and far too common. So if you want something more memorable and creative, opt for green marble. It will add a refined tone to space and the design will remain very timeless. Here we will give you some ideas on how to use green marble in several spaces.
Marble is widely used in bathrooms, and to make your space special, you can use toilets, walls, floors, and even green marble sinks. The material is durable, elegant, refined and resistant to scratches and water. Add copper or brass accessories to green marble for a super beautiful appearance.
Try adding green marble countertops to make the kitchen look amazing and at the same time get a very durable work surface. Opt for furniture with green marble countertops: this furniture will surely make a bold statement and give a touch of color to the design of the interior. And again the brass, gold and copper touches will make the color and nobility of this material stand out even more. Do not forget that the excessive use of green marble can make your space seem too capricious or sumptuous, which isn’t always a good idea.

If the real green marble is too expensive, replace it with tiles and wallpaper of the same appearance. Cover your bathroom with green marble tiles, totally or partially, and don’t forget that it may seem too dark and dark, so some bright or clear accents are required, for example, white tiles in some part of the bathroom. The green marble wallpaper will completely transform your space and make it refined and special, wherever you use it. Do not use too much, just an accent wall will suffice. Get inspired!
If we want to use green marble in decoration it is good to know a little more about this material whose beauty attracts us and fascinates us so much. For this reason, we have collected some interesting information to the respect below.
Origin and history
Green marble: marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, commonly calcite or dolomite. The marble can be foliate. Geologists use the term “marble” to refer to metamorphosed limestone; however, masons use the term more broadly to encompass non-metamorphosed limestone. Marble is commonly used for sculpture and as a construction material.
The word “marble” derives from the ancient Greek μάρμαρον (marmaron), from μάρμαρος (marmaros), “crystal rock, brilliant stone”, perhaps from the verb μαρμαίρω (marmaírō), “to flash, shine, shine” is also suggested that a probable pre-Greek origin.
This word is also the basis of the English word marmoreal, which means “similar to a marble”. While the English term resembles French marbre, most other European languages follow the original Greek: see Marmar in Persian and Irish, Spanish marble, Italian, German, Portuguese Marmor, Welsh, Slovenian, German, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish, Finnish marmori, Romanian marmură, Polish marmur, Dutch gunsmith, Turkish mermer, Czech mramor and Russian мрамор (mramor). In Hungarian, it is called marvány.
Marble is a rock that results from the metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, most commonly limestone or dolomite rock. Metamorphism causes variable recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. The resulting marble rock is typically composed of a mosaic of interlaced carbonate crystals. The textures and primary sedimentary structures of the original carbonate rock (protolith) have typically been modified or destroyed.
Pure white marble is the result of the metamorphism of a very pure limestone (poor in silicate) or protolith of dolomite. The swirls and veins characteristic of many varieties of colored marble is usually due to various mineral impurities, such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides or quart, which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.
The green coloration is often due to the serpentine that results from limestone or dolostone originally rich in magnesium with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.
Some uses: Sculpture
White marble has been appreciated for its use in sculptures since classical times. This preference has to do with its smoothness, which facilitated the carving, the relative isotropy, the homogeneity and relative resistance to breakage. In addition, the low refractive index of calcite allows light to penetrate several millimeters into the stone before dispersing, resulting in the characteristic waxy appearance that gives “life” to marble sculptures of any kind, which is why many Sculptors still prefer Marble to sculpt.
The green marble in construction
The marble construction is a stone that is composed of calcite, dolomite or serpentine that can be polished. More generally in construction, specifically trade in construction stone, the term “marble” is used for any crystalline calcite rock that can be used as a building stone.
Ashgabat, the capital city of Turkmenistan, was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records of 2013 with the world’s largest concentration of white marble buildings.
Green granite is a popular natural stone for decoration and construction. In India, there are many suppliers, exporters, and manufacturers of Indian green granite whose objective is to obtain slabs and tiles customized and standard for the following uses or purposes:
- Countertops and floors
- Wall cladding, vanity tops, and worktops.
- Cobbles, curbs, and steps.
- Dashboards, thresholds and construction plates.
- Decorative items and cemetery monuments.
If you need customized solutions, look for the professional consultation of stone experts and professionals.
In addition to the known granite deposits in India, the country also has the largest deposits of Green Marble (sometimes known as Green Guatemala in international markets). Its technical definition would be a compact variety of metamorphosed limestone able to take polish, rock composed of serpentine. Indian green is a very compact marble, hard and strong. Its hardness/strength is higher compared to other green stones found elsewhere. For example, Indian marble doesn’t deform. Unlike others, it doesn’t fade over time and it doesn’t rust either. From the architectural and aesthetic point of view, it has a soft green tone, for example, a whole floor of green marble looks very well. In addition, it provides excellent contrast when installed in combination with other marble colors.
The green marble deposits are found in Aravali’s mineral-rich mountain. The exact location is in the districts of Udaipur and Dungarpur, in the southwestern part of the state of Rajasthan. The deposits extend over a vast area in the districts with many villages, of which the Kesariyajee region in the Udaipur district and the adjacent areas of the Dungarpur district stand out. These deposits were discovered in the late ’70s and early ’80s. The mineral deposit is huge and the area is mainly hills and mountains.
There are a lot of quarries that work in the region. The concessions for the quarries are granted by the government for mining under a lease scheme that normally lasts 20 years. The lease is usually renewed at expiration. There are almost 300 quarry leases in the green marble region.
Extraction of green marble
The excavation of green marble from the quarries is done in a completely mechanized way at present with state-of-the-art machineries, such as chain saws, wire saws, drilling machines, etc., used to a great extent for extraction. Heavy earth moving machinery is also used in quarries, which alleviates the problem of overload and handling of marble blocks. Thanks to the previous technology, the production capacity of green marble has increased dramatically. Production in 2011 was estimated at around 150,000 metric tons. The blocks extracted from the quarries are large and, therefore, large slabs are available without any problem.
The different varieties of green marble
The available green marble in one region comes in various shades and the hue differs slightly from one region to another. Basically, it can be divided into two types:
1) One is dark smooth green with flower structure
2) The other has a green base with white streaks.
The tone and texture of the marble differ from one place to another and are classified to different varieties. Of the first type, the tone can vary from light to dark and these tones have been given different names such as forest green, Jade green, ocean green, green oasis, etc. The second type is similar to the previous one and the veins and clouds can also vary, such as being scattered, crowded or having thin veins, thick veins, etc.
