Fiori Di Bosco marble is a sedimentary carbonate rock. It comprises calcite (CaCO3), or a mixture of dolomite (Ca, Mg) and calcite. Originally it was limestone which transformed into marble over time.
The limestone rocks become marble thanks to the natural processes affecting them over millennia. Moreover, the term 'marble' comes from the old Greek word "Marmaris," meaning "shiny stone", describing the metamorphosis from limestone to marble.
