How Does Marble Get Mined From a Quarry?

Marble is one of the most admired materials for art and architecture.

Formed from calcite or dolomite crystals that are subjected to extreme heat and pressure in the interior of the Earth, this brilliant white stone is used in some of the world's most beautiful sculptures, buildings and furniture. Marble was historically mined by the ancient Greeks and continues to be mined from quarries today, all over the world.

Most of the natural stones are extracted from the quarries steps nearby by the following.

White Gold

Locating a potential quarrying site is the first step in the mining process. Next, a mining company needs to apply for all of the required licenses from the local, state, and federal government, a process that can take months to years.

Hitting the Motherload

Once mining has begun, there may be several months of digging before any marble is extracted from the quarry. Overburden, or dirt on top of the desirable ore, needs to be extracted before blocks of marble can be removed.

Forming the Bench

Mining marble blocks from the wall of the quarry starts with a "bench wall." The bench wall is a large section of marble along a vertical wall that is cut with diamond cables, drills, and torches.

Processing the Stone

After the blocks are extracted from the quarry, they'll go through further processing to match their intended purpose. For tiles, the marble is cut into stone billets and polished to a smooth sheen.
