The fact that limestone in nature becomes marble through metamorphic movements causes it to acquire different characteristics depending on the region and environmental interactions. The difference in pressure and temperature to which it is exposed is the main factor that determines the hardness of marble. Therefore, the climate and geographical conditions of the region where the quarry is located play a major role in the formation of different types of marble. So, what are the models and colors of marble quarried in different regions of our country?

Marble colors are usually white and gray tones. However, its interaction with elements such as calcium and cobalt during the formation process allows different colors to emerge. Thermal waters and various thermal interactions, especially underground, can affect the color of marble. For this reason, there are marble deposits of different colors in different regions of Turkey. Natural marble models also differ depending on the region where the quarry is located.

What are the types of marble?

Marbles are generally classified into four main categories. Different areas of use and physical properties are the most important criteria that determine the area in which the marble will be used. However, the color and hardness of the marble also play an important role in determining its type.

Marble Types

When it comes to marble types, we can list the first types that come to mind as follows:

There are various geological and structural differences that distinguish these types of marble. These structural characteristics, which are particularly important in determining the quality and variety of marble, are as follows

  • Geological Structure: Geological changes that occur during the formation of marble determine its quality and type.
  • Texture and Structure: Marble’s surface texture and internal structural features affect its areas of use.
  • Mineral Grains: The size of the mineral grains in marble affects its aesthetic appearance and durability.
  • Mineral Composition Ratio: The mineral composition ratio of marble determines properties such as color and hardness.

After examining these criteria, the variety and type of marble can be clearly determined. As a result of these meticulous examinations; it is decided in which area it should be used according to its property status.

What are marble colors?

The calcite crystals that it interacts with during its formation allow marble to form in different colors. Marble, which is generally formed in white and gray tones, can take on different colors depending on these interactions in the region where it is found. The geographical location of Turkey plays an important role in the formation of different marble colors and patterns. In this context, the marble colors obtained in our country are quite diverse. In response to your questions about marble models and marble colors, we have a variety of marble in the following colors, especially white marble:

This variety of colors allows marble to be used and preferred in more areas. With the privilege of Efesus Stone, you can immediately obtain the marble products in the colors you need. You can examine the marble products that we obtain from the highest quality mines of our country on our website or in our factory sales stores.

How many types of marble are there?

The main criterion for determining the type of marble is the geological structure of the region where it is mined. However, marble is also classified according to its mineral and textural structure. Geological events that occur during formation and the severity of these events are effective in dividing marble into different types. In general, the classifications in determining the variety of marble can be expressed as follows:

Diversification of Marble by Mineral Grain

  • Fine grain marble
  • Medium grain marble
  • Coarse marble
  • Large grain marble

Diversification of marble by structure and texture

  • Laminal Marble
  • Solid marble
  • Brecciated Marble
  • Schist Marble

Diversification of marble by geological structure

  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Metamorphic rock

The above analyses for the diversification of marble are evaluations used to determine the type of marble and what type it is.

Which marble is the most expensive?

Primarily used as a building material, marble is often preferred in many different sectors and areas. Marble attracts more attention than other natural stones due to its hard structure, long life, different color options and hygienic structure as it is a natural product. Marble, which is carefully extracted from the mines where it is formed and called by different names according to its special structure, can be formed in different structural features such as granite, travertine, onyx, limestone and andesite.

Marbles are called by different names according to the region where they are mined and their color; they are also valued in different price ranges according to their color, hardness and polishability. “Which is the most expensive marble?” is one of the most frequently asked questions in this field.

Marble colors and styles are the most important factors in determining the price of marble. However, rarity is another reason that affects prices. Onyx marble, known as the most expensive marble in our country and in the world, stands out for its transparent and crystallized structure. Onyx, which is less common in nature than other types of marble, is also often preferred as a decorative product due to its translucent structure. Onyx marbles are sold in different price ranges according to their hues and translucency. Onyx marble models that we offer to our customers with valuable and different color options can be listed as follows:

  • White Onyx
  • Honey Onyx
  • Bubble Onyx
  • Cappuccino Onyx
  • Velluto Onyx
  • Silver Onyx
  • Gold Onyx
  • Cocacola Onyx
  • Satin Onyx
  • Salmon Onyx
  • White Onyx
  • Dark Desert Onyx
  • Light Desert Onyx

With the quality and assurance of Efesus Stone, you can examine the best quality onyx marble varieties of our country in our factory sales stores and have information about stock and color diversity.
