H:25.5" Diameter of shade: 14" The word "marble" derives from the Greek marmaros, "shining stone" Marble is a metamorphic rock resulting from the metamorphism of limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate). It is extensively used for sculpture, as a building material, and in many other applications. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various minerals such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. The Rouge Color is unusual and elegant in color and a contrast to the detailed Urn, combined for a distinctive look.
